This question is over 2 years old and doesn't work with the newest version of MacOS (10.14.2).

I've tried clearing cache space, and I have almost 5GB free but it still feels the need to notify me every 3 minutes which is both distracting and unhelpful.

This is also not helpful at all.

    5GB just isn't enough free space! There's a reason macOS is warning you with such fervor.

    The old question is still applicable, it's the current answer that is out of date. Someone needs to post a new answer to the existing question—if a solution actually exists, which it very well may not. Feb 10, 2019 at 21:09

    macOS needs free space to use as temporary space. You should try to free up some space. delete some apps you are not using. Delete a video or two. Feb 11, 2019 at 3:59
