Can't read cache

Feb 25, 2013 9:00 AM

Every time I start Bridge I receive the following message "Bridge encountered a problem and is unable to read the cache. Please try purging the central cache in Cache Prefences to correct the situation".  Well repeated attempts at taking this advice have no effect on the problem.  Suggestions on what to try next?  Does purging really do anything as it seems to finish instantly and with a lot of photograph I would expect it to take a while to purge them all.

    Purging cache is not taking long, it should delete the content to the trash. But if succeeded your files should start recaching from scratch to build a new thumbnail and preview according to your settings.

     

    Can you provide details about computer, OS and version of Bridge?

    With a small SSD you probably have your files scattered.  Are you using internal drives for cache and files?
