Persistent Disk Cache (mostly) vanished?!
on Nov 1, 2012 at 2:54:02 pm

Yesterday I had a disk cache of 430 GB of perfectly rendered material and all was well.

I woke up today and it has dropped to 130 GB. I DID NOT purge the Cache -- it just vanished 300 GB of hard-Rendered work...

Has anyone else experienced this?

I don't really monitor my cache. Was your cache close to its limit when this stuff disappeared?

Yes it was at it's limit -- I can understand it removing some older files - but it dumped 300 gigs of renders....

I am switching between 2 different large projects each with many sub-comps of High Def footage.... It's as if it dumped all of one project to make room for the other -- didn't think it was supposed to do that.....

I updated to CS 6 -- 11.0.2 today... Hoping that might help...

I have no idea what the rules are for pruning the cache. Is it possible it deleted everything related to a specific footage element?
