Drive Space is almost full

Kept getting this message on my work MBP:

Then found that there was a folder called ‘cores’ that was full of 278GB of dumps!

Once I deleted them on Terminal they kept reappearing so had to use this command:

sudo launchctl limit core 0 0
sudo sysctl -w kern.coredump=0

But this won’t be persisted through a restart. To do so create a new file on /etc/sysctl.conf (if it does not exist yet) and write in the following configuration:

kern.coredump=0
