Download and use Find Any File.app (FAF) and use it to do some snooping about,

Use it to find "microsoft", outlook, and by date installed or modified etc.

If a reboot doesn't fix it, the account data can be manually dumped from ~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles.

You may want to try AppCleaner (https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/) too

i followed the remove and uninstall office 2016 completely from my mac
and it included that.
yet my drive is still missing it..

i ran drive repair, even had MS support remote in and they were fools as they were PC support but then found a mac rep who basically said my computer is faulty lol

in the end i am now short 30 GBs - i will try app cleaner..
thank you to all that posted.. i will try each post, incase i missed something.

Maybe give these a try:
OnyX (Use the compatible version and just run the default automatic setting)
https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/11582/onyx
https://www.titanium-software.fr/en/onyx.html

disk inventory x

GrandPerspective
https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/19515/grandperspective

And use Disk Utility and run any repairs available.

:D :eek:

This thread prompted me to run Onyx, which I hadn't done in a long time...

I had 110GB free on my HD

After the reboot I had... 79 !

Started to remove unused apps etc. While I was doing this the free space number crept up in the background.

I now have 119Gb...

Perhaps you installed OneDrive in the process?

One can often get a similar effect by just doing a Shutdown and a Reboot or sometimes doing a cold boot using Safe Boot Mode. Doing so will often cleanup a lot of surplus stuff like old cache files etc,

Onyx does similar purging but is a bit more ruthless, including removing some passwords foe some sites etc. For that reason alone I tend to use it very sparingly, and certainly not more than once a month.

But I must say that some of the "savings" reported above seem a but excessive unless they were due to Time Machine's backup drive not being connected.

i never save passwords.. as i like to exercise my brain whenever possible.. but i do have a book called " hit by the bus" for my wife should i expire naturally or other causes.

as for the time machine - i checked it has only 4 in the buffer and i deleted them with terminal commands - nothing really came up..
I have to tell you that i truly do believe Microsoft makes horrible products.
