Default Re: No such file or directory (2)

I am not sure I follow all you are saying.

Are you saying you looked for ~/Library/Preferences/Avid and it was not there... ? ~/Preferences is a hidden folder by default. You can get to it via Terminal or in the Finder by using the menu item "Go" and holding down the option key will then show the Library folder. If the whole folder is literally not there that's interesting.

While poking around there you might look at log files from failed startups in ~/Library/Logs/Avid and just see if there is any more clues there.

The 2TB SSD is your boot drive? How have you got multiple versions of Pro Tools installed? ... and that may directly be your problem.

Why does the disk having too much data on a drive stop you creating another admin user.... if it's that full you may have other problems. You don't even need a session to reproduce the problem. And a new user account uses very little space on disk.

Anyhow big picture next steps seem straightforward if things still are not working including removing all the various Pro Tools versions, temp. moving all .aaxplugin files out of the plugin folder and trashing prefs, installing a clean supported Pro Tools version with standard plugins and seeing if it works at all. And if that does not fix it then a new macOS install.
