Did a lot of research and saw where Adobe caches can total up to tens of GBs in size. So I went into Library and did as recommended.

To Clear Adobe Caches:
  1. Library>Application Support>Adobe>Common>Media Cache (Delete everything in this folder)
  2. Library>Application Support>Adobe>Common>Media Cache Files (Delete everything in this folder)

Saw a few Youtube videos where people did this and they cleared out 20+GB of caches. I did it, deleted over 11,000 cache files, but saw less than 1 GB difference.

This is really frustrating. I thought for sure that Adobe, the king od bloat, would have been the issue.

I ran the free version of CleanMyMac X and it identified over 20 GB of caches to delete in Adobe's CreativeCloud, but I didn't want to pay them $39 to do so. So I'll keep searching for the culprit...

-------------------------------------

ETA: According to the rescan by CleanMyMac X, the two main culprits are:
  • 9.17 GB Adobe Camera Raw 2
  • 5.78 GB Adobe Camera Raw
  • 2.09 GB Google Earth

But that still doesn't explain why my system is at 124.68 GB. Even if I paid CleanMyMac X to delete the 20.25 GB of caches it found, System would still be over 100 GB!
