So I downloaded the 13 beta today to start doing some refactoring work. Total size of the darn thing was ~33GB. 😬

Welp, looks like I will have to continue offloading Xcode to an external SSD for the foreseeable future.


I wrote a script to hopefully make it a less of a pain when unplugging the drive. Basically kills Xcode-related processes that may prevent me from doing so.

I *wanted* to put this in a Shortcut so I could pull it up from the menu bar, but the shell script option causes to crash. I guess this has to wait until the next beta. 😅
