If disk space less 10 gb after effect not use disk cache and delete old data of cache.
Accordingly, you can not use background rendering. I have ssd 64 gb and not can allow plenty of space.
There is a solution to the problem?
After effects cs6.

Yes -- more disk space. The whole point of the cache is to store intermediates and final frames so they don't need to be re-rendered. If there's not enough room to store them, what do you expect the feature to do?

However, if you're looking to render in the background while continuing to work on the GUI in the foreground, you can use the aerender command line renderer, or you can keep an eye on Lloyd Alvarez's BG Renderer script [link] for CS6 compatibility.

Why do you need an extra 10 gb? If space is 12 gb it used to be only 2 gb.

[Dmitry Sokolov] "Why do you need an extra 10 gb? If space is 12 gb it used to be only 2 gb."

It could be a couple reasons: prevent the cache from competing with virtual memory for extremely limited resources, leave enough room for other temporary files, avoid the low-performance associated with near-full disks...

I see your point that it'd be nice to have more control here, especially for SSD users, but unfortunately there is no way to work around this that I am aware of.
