    Have a macbook pro trying to help with. Dude jumped on Beta because he thought that would be fun, and it's, you know, a beta...so it has broken his finder etc. and otherwise rendered machine deadish.

    So, trying to reinstall from internet recovery. Needs 1.8GB more space. 1.8GB... seriously

    Popped into Terminal and rm and rmdir'd several itunes movies, big downloads etc.

    Disk Utility and macOS show exactly the same empty space in drive.

    (Yes when I rm or rmdir I verify with ls after, and it's definitely gone... just no space is coming back).

    What am I missing?
