I am running BigSur 11.4 and noticed I have a huge amount (160GB) of "Other" under manage Storage.
As it is greyed out I am unable to identify what this would entail and all guides that I found on internet did not not help.

If I search by file size there is nothing that stands out which could explain the many GB's in the other category.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks
