First of all 256 Gig is huge, as far as Homebrew is concerned. I have had homebrew installed
even on very old systems with no more than that.

Secondly, drag the sucker over to the iStore or Gravis and have them bang a proper SSD in. Been there, done that.

Or, thirdly, install minimal Homebrew and then look under /usr/local and /opt, what it uses, move them to another Volume and symlink/mount them accordingly.

Why is this so complicated? Not unfamiliar says the German in me. But then I am only an elderly Gynecologist not doing high performance computing.
