    Just wondering what you use when you max out your iMac's hard drive and need more space. Looking for recommendations. Thanks.

    The simplest way to solve this problem is to go through all your files and delete anything you don't need. Apple included a nice utility in MacOS Sierra to make this process easier ( > About This Mac > Storage > Manage). If you've used iMovie in the past I also recommend going into preferences there and deleting the render files.

    If you still need more space for files where speed isn't very important (such as video files/movies), you can buy and attach an external mechanical drive fairly cheaply.
