I currently followed a tutorial to install Docker on an external drive and it quickly sucked up a bunch of the disk space. I'm running over 100 gigs for docker. It seems to be an exaggerated about of space but I'm not sure if this is normal. I installed the docker community for Mac.

I'm on a mac and it had me forward a symlink to my external.

ln: /Users/Me/Library/Containers/com.docker.docker: File exists

It's forwarding to my external. In the external I have this:


The size of the above is 71.11 gigs. Then I also have a directory called Dockerthat contains a file Docker.raw which is 58.66 gigs.

Total is almost 130 gigs. Is this normal? Or is there something I can trash that i don't need?
