Average "Other" space in 'About this Mac'
I'm actually wondering how large is an average "Other" space shown in the "About this Mac" menu.
Mine is about 21GB. But I guess it includes my 9GB Virtual Machine. So is it around 12?
I didn't check unfortunately upon setting up my computer.
Moreover, I have an unknown 0.8GB of Photos, no idea where they come from. I have none! But well...

Other includes a local time machine backup for when a time machine drive is not available. It should go down after a backup. There's also a terminal command that can disable local time machine backups if you don't want them. A quick google search should find it. On a Mac that is the majority of your'Other'.
