What is the '.save_docker/' folder? Can I delete it?
After using docker, I found my disk space had been eat a lot. I searched google to resolve the problem, found a post said this is because of aufs & devicemapper.
Now I found a folder named
/home. In this folder, there is a folder names aufs, the aufs folder almost 16 G.
I want to know what is the folder and can I delete it?.

save_docker doesn’t seem used in docker or boot2docker or compose or machine.
But even before trying to remove it, check if you have:
stopped containers that you could remove
docker rm -v $(docker ps -a -q -f status=exited)
docker rmi $(docker images --filter "dangling=true" -q --no-trunc)
For that, see
HardySimpson/docker-cleanup bash script.
dcl bash script.
Then check if you still have a disk space issue, and if
/home/.save_docker was modified in any way.
