I noticed that my iMac HD suddenly lost 90 GB of free space. I did a "disk inventory" and discovered a folder in the After Effects CS6 preferences folder now was 90GB. I took a deep breath and trashed the folder. After Effects still works fine, but I'm wondering what happened. This never happened in past versions of After Effects. Thanks!

Jim

That must be the Disk or Media Cache. Press " Cmnd + Optn + ; " and Go to Media and Disk Cache. Check the path of Disk and Media cache and allotted Maximum Disk Cache Size.
