I never thought about this until now.
I check the dropdowns in Rhino. Under file is an interesting point “Revert to” -> browse all Versions. while clicking this you get in an time machine looking menu with all Version.
My Question now is: How can I delete old sometimes very old versions of the file?!
“Navigate to the File > Revert To > Browse All Versions… When the Version explorer appears, move the mouse pointer to upper border of your screen and the Rhinoceros menu bar will appear. Under File > Revert To you can delete a single old version or - if you hold down the option/alt key - you can delete all previous versions”
Was tempted to address your scenario, but concerned about leading someone astray. If you go down this path ensure that all your data is safely backed up and tread lightly. Google - DocumentRevisions-V100
I do the cleaning of “versions” regularly. For this “OnyX” use. After starting it and checking the disk, select the delete icon (the broom) then “miscellaneous” check on “versions of documents saved automatically”. At the end reboot and the memory under “other” (which includes document versions) is available again.
I’ve played with OnyX before. Couldn’t recall if it purged versions. If it does, this is likely a safer route than mucking with terminal to do same, when one is neither versed nor comfortable with such, and if one really has no other alternative to recapture necessary boot drive disk space in a hurry.
That is actually what I did. Apple support told me to reinstall the OS. I figured that I might as well try blowing away that directory first. If it had screwed up something, it would have been no worse than a reinstall.
I had to reboot for the disk space to show up: 370GB of space.
I have gone from disk constrained to plenty of free space.
I would advise you to do copy paste of the parts to intersect on a new file and use the intersection command. then do the reverse path to bring the intersection lines back to the original file. I often do this.
