I tend to do the same processes. A little addition:

  • rm -rf ~/Dropbox/.dropbox.cache/*
  • Browser -> History -> Clear current history -> Cache
    • Clear browser cache
  • rm -rf ~/.var/app/REMOVED_APP
    • Data may remain after Snaps have been removed
  • rm -rf ~/.config/JetBrains/IntelliJIdeaPREVIOUS/
    • You can delete directories of previous versions of IDEA
  • Vagrant / VirtualBox: Move virtual machine to another drive
  • Run git prune in repositories

Awesome! I'll definitely try this. I might end up with more space. Thank you!
