Can't sync (not enough space) - but there are plenty

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi!

I'm trying to migrate files from Dropbox, about 4 TB. I'm doing it in batches because I only had 600 GB left om my HDD when I started.

Now I get the message that there are not enough space, but there are about 330 GB left (according to Finder). The files I'm syncing are about 153 GB.

What shall I do?

I looked up cache files, but they are about 11 MB...

I'm on Mac OS Catalina and Dropbox v85.4.155

Hey @SwedenTech. Thanks for reacing out!

I understand that since you see the error on your desktop but not online, this might be a hard drive space issue. Please attach a screenshot, to help me make sure we are on the same page with this. 

Are you using Selective Sync or Smart Sync to save your hard drive space? 

Looking forward to the screenshot. Thanks!

A screenshot of the error saying you don't have enough space please. 

I want to make sure the error is referring to the Hard drive space. That's why I need the screenshot.
