I can't find where a similar question was asked, but... I'm on macOS 10.13.2, and my Home folder reads 31.15 GB larger than sum of individual subfolders when I use Get Info.
Home folder says: 76.33 GB
Individual folders sum to: 45.18 GB
and because my computer uses the Home folder size, my available hard drive space under Get Info also reads 31.15 GB too low.
Invisible files are just small data files, a few lines of text.
How do I force macOS to fix the home folder size?
