Tag: Docker Mac Disk

The disk space on my mac is too short since i start to use docker.  Using the management tools i found the file Docker.qcow2 with the size of 41,5 GB.

Searching for a solution i found the following:

” Docker For Mac uses a file called Docker.qcow2 that takes more and more disk space as time passes. Deleting images or containers does not decrease the size of this file.”

The script bellow do the job an keep your selected images.
