Where are docker images stored?

(Tonyx) #1

When I try to do a docker pull it gets stuck while downloading the image. Each time I retry downloading that particular image it would first fetch the locally cached version and then try resuming download from there. I would like to reset the cache and remove the local partial download so I can retry. However I can’t seem to figure out where Docker For Mac actually stores the downloaded images. Can someone give me a hint?

Your docker is probably in an unstable status, have you tried docker-machine restart?

I just installed the latest stable release of docker for mac, just trying to understand where does the docker for mac store the images in the host file system?
