Hi! I'm making an Electron app and using electron-builder to build it.
I'm running a macos AppVeyor CI and near the end of the build I get the following error
⨯ Exit code: 1. Command failed: ln -s /Applications /Volumes/Frosty Desktop 1.0.0/Applications
ln: /Volumes/Frosty Desktop 1.0.0/Applications: No space left on device
ln: /Volumes/Frosty Desktop 1.0.0/Applications: No space left on device
I'm here to request a disk space increase. Although, this has worked before, but it's probably because of something I added.

The specific build that is failing:

    We'll look into that during the next macOS image update (we are working on it right now). I've created a new issue to track:

    For now, you may try to workaround that by deleting something unnecessary.

    Actually, there should be around 60 GB available on macOS images. It doesn't look like that error comes because there is no disk space on VM disk itself.

    MacOS images haven't been updated for a while. When was the last successful build?

    So turns out my thing was on macOS-Mojave for some reason, but I changed it to macOS and it still didn't work.

    The fact that rebuilt of the last successful commit is successful hints that it's not environment changes, but some changes to the code that caused that error.

    Moreover, with the recent macOS images update there is now around 80 GB of free space for your builds: which should be enough, right?
