Opening an example or starting a new app in Qlik Sense Desktop latest version running in VMWare Fusion Professional Version 8.0.2 (3164312) eats all of the HD (gigabytes) and crashes the Mac. Help.
I'm sorry for this issue you are encountering, I will perform some research on my end and update you. What version of the Windows OS are you running on VMWare Fusion?

found the app at:
that was huge in size (20+GB ) and continued to grow until I killed the "QlikSense.exe" process in windows task manager.............."
To change the home app folder for Qlik Sense Desktop:
DocumentDirectory=C:\temp (Or wherever you want)

I'm on Windows 8.1 Pro.
I'll try the suggestion after the weekend.
Seems to work now, but the demo apps do not appear anymore.
I suppose I have to move some files.
