cant open premiere I moved cache

Apr 7, 2013 11:38 AM

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

Steven

    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?

    Thiis makes no sense Premiere should still open. You mean locate your  project?

    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.

    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

     

    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.
