Thanks Edward

Do not let your hard drive fill over 85% total capacity. This will cause the Mac to have this problem and you may start losing files.

For right now try doing the following:

Start the Mac in Safe Mode by following the instructions on my link below -

Safe mode will delete temporary files which may give you enough room to start the MAC. If it does, you need to copy enough data to another drive (eg: USB External Drive) so it starts normally.

Copy enough files so you have at least 20GB free on your computer and keep it that way, or even more.

Let me know the results please

Thank you
