So I own MacBook pro-2017, but I have an issue with the storage. The deal is that "system" takes up close to 300 GB of storage (precisely it is 291,21 GB). I have tried several cleaning programmes but nothing seems to work, so I'm asking if I have to do a hard reset of my mac or if there is an easier way around it. Thanks
 
Purge perhaps:

Try to learn more about the problem/situation.

E.g.:

The key is to identify the specific folders/files etc. that are taking all that space.

Once the folders/files are identified the next step is to learn how they can be (if they can be) safely removed and the taken space restored for use.
