Lightroom v 3.3
Operating System
macOS 10.13 High Sierra
I am getting message that my local storage, for storing copies of originals, is full when using Lightroom CC 3.3
I am using 2tb external drive that has 1tb free space

It was working fine until I installed the latest update this morning.

How much free space is available in the Prin=Mary disk drive (MacIntosh HD)? Lightroom uses working story as a staging area for intermediate files. Fill that up and MacOS runs out of local (working) storage before Lightroom can write the local copy to the EHD.

Also if Working storage is full, some apps don't release their shareof wothking storage ("/TEMP") until you reboot MacOS.

Have you checked the Preferences>Local Storage tab to make sure that the location for storing local originals is still pointing to the external HD, and has not reverted to the system drive?

And you are sure your target is not on a NAS?

It might be simpler just to roll back to 3.2 for now, while they fix that error. There were a couple of people on that bug thread who seem to be on normal external drives too.
