Persistent false-alarm about lack of space for disc cache.

Every time I launch After Effects I get a warning about not having enough space for the disc cache, even though I have a 2TB HD with more than 1TB of unused space, and 2000GB allowed for the disc cache. Could anyone advise me as to what's going on, and anything I may need to do differently?

 

Thanks.

Could be the typical user permissions issues that plague recent versions of OS X and prevent Adobe apps from accessing some folders or worse yet file system level stuff. A File --> Info on the respective Library folders might be enlightening as may an excursion to your disk utility.

Thank you, @Mylenium,

 

You have to forgive me, I don't have a depth of technical knowledge regarding these kinds of issues, so I may be doing an ineffectually literal version of interpreting your advice.

 

So I went into all of the folders and enabled all permissions to everyone (I'm the only person using this laptop, so hopefully that's a safe thing to do.

 

No difference in the results, unless I need to restart my computer.

 I also took a look with Disc Utility, but I don't have any idea how to interpret the data or if it suggests anything actionable to do.

Is there anything else I should do? 

 

Or perhaps, at the end of the day, should I just ignore the warnings when launching After Effects and get on with my work?
