We have a new video on the MacTricksandTips Video Channel. This goes back to a post a few months ago about disabling local time machine backups. If you don’t have your Time Machine drive plugged in, it will create a local backup on your Mac until you do. If you are limited on space, or don’t want these backups you can disable them with a Terminal command. It is a simple trick. You use the
tmutil disablelocal to stop them from happening.
