Hello Evall,


Not overly familiar with Mac software but freeing up space on the HDD is exactly the same as any other OS, back up to another storage device such as an external USB HDD using Time Machine as a minimum, for the most important data back up to two devices and or the Cloud, some general info here and iCloud info here once your data is backed up and double checked that it has done so correctly, delete the least important data from the hard drive until you have the amount of required free storage space.


Back up your Mac


NB: For small amounts of data you could use good quality USB thumb drives.

If you don't know what to do if you see startup disk full notification, first of all, you have to empty the trash. The files in the trash bin can affect your Mac's speed. Also, you can use cleaning apps.
