Change the photo cache size to something lower, say 5%. Can you then repeat that screenshot so that I can check that location change that you did.

 

Also, using Finder open that Lightroom Library.lrlibrary package and drill down till you find the "Originals" folder and then  do a "Get Info" on that folder. Just want to see how much space is being used by Lightroom to store originals.
