If you have been using mega.nz a lot you will eventually run into this problem, at least on chrome it happens when you download certain amount of GB, the limited used to be 10GB but since mega become worse over time like it is now only 3GB.

Which means after downloading 3 GB you will get the message “OUT of HTML5 Offline Storage Space” like shown on the picture above or “Error writing file, is your harddrive almost full? (getFile)” as far as i know this can be avoided by using MegaSync client or if you still want to use the “download through your browser” method then follow the steps below:

  1. On google Chrome put this into the address bar: chrome://settings/cookies
    and press enter. (it is a good idea to add it to the favorites bar)
  2. in there a window will pop up, in that window search foe “mega”. Delete all the cookies you find with the x that shows up when hovering, see the picture below:

  3. Once you delete the cache. Reload the mega download page and once again click download through your browser, this time it will complete.
  4. That’s it!

Remember to check your cache from time to time and remove it if it gets near 3GB.

Do not clear your cache while downloading a file, you will lose it and be forced to start over.

I hope this helped! Cheers!
