Why am I spending all afternoon trying to open premiere and change the refrences to cache file location. Why cant I get in to change locations? why does premiere lock up when it encounters a problem. Does anyone have a orkaround for this. I should be able to get into premiere to redirect these refrences.
Thanks in advance
When I create a new project on my #2 drive I also specify #2 as the location for that project's temporary files
Are you talking about the default files that go on drive C?

win8 64 and I have an i7 32 gig ram and terabytes of available space. its the cache stuff iit cant find. Premiere now locks up on start up. I think my only option is to reinstall or plant copies of the cache on the old drive letter. I can double click on the project file and it still locks up I have a system/program raptor drive, a media and project file drive, a drive for the cache, and a drive to write to. so theres no bottlenecks from the drives doing to much. it worked suoer fast till I reassigned the drive letters.
Did you move the Cache within Windows by drag/drop or move/Paste? If so, you should not do that. On the Premiere Edit Menu go to Preferences and the Media tab. There you will find the means to move the Cache to where you want it, and Premiere will be able to find it.
Normally Premiere simply re-creates the cache in the default location if it is opened, and the location it expects to find the cache is inaccessible.
Exactly, but that exactly was the issue. Premiere would not even load up so I could do that. So I was forced to copy/paste the folder to where premiere expected it to be. Then premiere loaded and I was able to redirect to the location I wanted the cache. All this happend as a result of changing system drive letter assignment in disk management in my control panel. Any other program would have seen the file wasnt there,presented the error message and offered the option to load the default profile and opened the program. Premiere does not do that,Premiere cant find the cache in the expected location...then locks up going into the not responding mode.
All the Best

Normally it does. This is quite evident when you open a project created on another computer with a different drive setup. I've never seen PP 'not open' because the Cache location wasn't there any more.
