So I went to export my album on my external network drive, but I get an error that says I am low on disk space. It is only 30 images and I've never had this issue until this update. I was able to export this to my desktop and then upload it to my network drive, but I would much rather export directly to the intended folder.

Hi Adam,

this sounds like a bug.
The warning should show up depending on your disk space on the device.
In this case it's however misleading since you are trying to export to a network folder.

Do you have more than 500Mb free on the device?

thanks,
Ignacio

Also, when you run into this issue, which one of the following are you using:
A: "Export to Files"
B: "Share To..."
C: "Export As..."

Thanks,
Ignacio

I actually have 93.5 TB on one I was saving to, but I have another one that is 20 TB and neither are working.

I would like to Ditto this. I have a FreeNAS server with over 80TB free, and I am told that there is no remaining space on the disk.  Lightroom nothing but a virtual paperweight. I can't import any photos, or do anything, because Lightroom INCORRECTLY, can't seem to figure out there is over 80TB of free space...

I have even tried creating a dedicated share directly to the folder, nothing. I even have reserved space dedicated to the share folder, nada.  For what it is worth, the Share is using unix share permissions.
