Topic: Exposing macOS APFS Snapshots - How Your Mac Is Protecting Your Data in the Background
Modern Macs run on APFS, the file system that dictates how every bit of data is stored and accessed on disk or SSD. One component of APFS is the snapshots feature, where macOS is quietly making copies of your data in the background. Jeff Carlson joins us to talk about how snapshots differ from backups, how they impact the free space on your startup disk, and how you can take advantage of them.
