Weston Posted Friday at 23:04 Share Posted Friday at 23:04 I've already submitted this issue as a proper support ticket, but I'm posting here publicly because I'm curious if anyone else is also experiencing the same issue? I am using a MacBook Air (M1, 2020) running macOS Monterey Version 12.2.1 (21D62). I noticed that my device had ~300GB of "System Data" that was clogging up my hard drive. Neither myself nor Apple support could determine what this was or where it was coming from, so I was advised to backup my computer, wipe it completely, and then only drag back on what I specifically knew I needed until I could locate what was causing the issue. When I went to drag the Sports Interactive folder from the hard drive to the Application Support folder on my laptop, it showed that it contained a total of 172GB across multiple editions of the game located within the folder. However, when it finished transferring, in addition to the GB added to the Documents category within my hard drive as expected, ~280GB of "System Data" suddenly appeared for no discernible reason, indicating that the problem stems from this folder. I had not opened the game once since reinstalling, so it does not appear that this ~280GB of "System Data" was created by any user action within the platform, and as it did not appear to be present in the folder when it was present in the hard drive, it would seem that it was created somehow during the process of loading it into my Mac. I was able to remove about 2/3 of the mysterious "System Data" by removing the past two FMs that were on this computer, meaning that ~1/3 of the ~280GB seems to correspond with FM23, specifically. Anyone have any idea what is causing this and/or how to fix it? I should note that I do have various graphics and mods added (so it's completely reasonable to have a large file size for the folder due to facepacks, etc), however I do this every edition and never experienced this issue until this year.
