Free space issue

Post by NewGuy1981 »

Hello everyone, new guy here. I looked for this issue before posting, but I apologize if it's a repeat.

I am trying to rip my blu-ray collection on my M1 Mac Mini w/ Big Sur. I've run into a bit of an issue. My computer has 145gb of free space on it, but according to the MakeMV program, there are only 21gbs of free space left, which is not enough to rip the movie I'm working on.

When I started (about 4 movies ago) it said I had 71gb of free space on the drive. While that was less than I knew my computer had, it still worked. It's slowly decreased to an unusable figure. If there is a cache folder, I'm unable to find it.

Any ideas?

How to free up storage space on your Mac

You really should consider getting some external storage. A plain old hard drive is fast enough and cheap enough to do this sort of stuff. A blu-ray is around 30GB and a 4K UHD is somewhere between 50GB and 75GB typically. 10TB external drives are often less than $200.
