Running out of disk space on OSX

I just recently ran out of space on my relatively new OSX desktop machine, which came with over a 1TB. Strange! I thought. Downloaded the excellent (and free) OmniDiskSweeper and let it run. https://www.omnigroup.com/more/ Well, that would explain it. Nearly 1 TB of core files in /cores. Removed them and set the hard limit to prevent their creation. http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/215410/os-x-el-capitan-cores-directory-taking-up-a-lot-of-space And suddenly I have a very much happier machine :)
