Prevent Docker eating up disk space - only used for webodm


I use docker desktop simply to run webodm to process drone images. I do this infrequently, perhaps once a month or so. My issue is docker, even when not being used is using 50gb of disk space. I there a way I can release this disk space during the 98% of the time when I am not needing docker?

In an ideal work, I would like to host my docker disk image on an external hard drive that I can just plug in when I wish to use webodm, however, I haven’t yet identified a simple way to do this.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks. Jasper


Do you know what is using these 50gb? is it the images you process or ?
