External hardrive data management PC and MAC

Hope this is the correct topic in the right spot in the forums.
I’ve noticed quite a few daws and other apps/ programs are unable to keep the internal hardrive from filling up with various data from their respective apps. For example
Studio one and Melodyne Studio ....melodyne and studio one have certain files that can’t get redirected to external hardrives .
I have read somewhere that many recordists don’t worry about their internal hardrive getting filled up as much because of the lower cost and higher amounts of data space avail nowadays. Some workflow being that a few songs get worked on completed on the internal drive ...then everything once done just backed up to an external and deleted from the internal drive. Is this because computers are just better and faster now? I’m not talking about songs or the apps themselves on the internal but certain files other than the app itself . The costs of SSD Drives aren’t that cheap yet...getting there eventually. Hope this makes sense. If not I can give clear examples of files that can only stay on the internal main drive. Maybe I’ve never realized this fact before?
