Filled Drive Problem

A common problem we see is that when a computers drive is totally filled it is unable to start up because there is no remaining room for temporary cache space for the computer to function. Unpicking this is difficult because lots of files need to be deleted to get the storage back to having about 20% spare capacity. We don’t know what files to delete for you and its risky anyway, especially if the drive is a small one – typically a 128Gb Solid State drive. The Macbook Pro’s from late 2013 onward and certain Macbook Air models now use specially-made PCI-E drives for storage. Due to this, accessing data is a lot faster, however the drawback is that the storage in these newer models is greatly reduced… So the best options really are to upgrade the drive to a larger SSD, add an SD card or buy an external storage hard drive and move all the non-essential files on to it.
