How to fix this issue ...your disk cache folder is on a drive that does not have enough available space after effects
This warning tells you that one of your hard disks is getting full, and does not have enough space for After Effects to fully utilize as a disk cache.
To solve this issue, you have a few options:
1. Delete files from your hard disk to make more space.
2. Assign the disk cache to a different hard disk.
3. Reduce the maximum disk cache size.
4. Disable the disk cache.
For 2, 3, and 4, the disk cache options are located in Preferences > Media & Disk Cache.
A good first step is to click the Empty Disk Cache button in that panel, to delete existing disk cache files.
Because the disk cache can consume a significant portion of a disk, we recommend assigning it to a secondary hard drive. A fast SSD drive will improve the performance of the disk cache, but is not necessary.

Same issue, 2TB dedicated cache drive. Even with cache set to less than 1TB I get the warning every restart. Literally AE cache is the only thing on the drive. The moral is never upgrade to the latest version.

I have the same issues as the others - I store my cache on an external SSD (1TB) which currently has 679GB of free space but I still get the error message when I start AE (though not every time). The external disc is formatted as Mac OC Extended (Journaled)

I didn't have enough space on my drive for my cache, then I went and cleared a TB of files. Now I have tons of space on the drive, but I'm still getting the error when starting After Effects. Please help.
