Yes, of course it is big enough.
But big projects and or big frame sizes will fill it faster than you will believe.
So purge caches often.

Save finished clips and resources on a different drive.

[Wallace Adrian D'Alessio] "Yes, of course it is big enough. But big projects and or big frame sizes will fill it faster than you will believe."

Agree to both. It's not about the size of the original files, it's about the size of your raster, the number of layers, and the length of the project.


[Wallace Adrian D'Alessio] "So purge caches often."

The cache is self-pruning; it automatically deletes older cached layer-frames to make room for new ones without the user having to manually purge.

When you figure out your big project bins are not "self pruning " enough
Thank Adobe that they still give you controls to make room.

This screen shot is from the prefs >cache panel of the latest AE CC May of 2016

Do what you want.

You're absolutely right that the conformed media cache does not automatically delete old items. I was referring to the disk cache, which does.

Walter, When does it delete the files from the disk cache? When you quit the after effects?
