    Illustrator creating 100's of invisible cache files OS X

    kevinneal01 Community Member

      We have 8 designers all running identicle systems, but one user is constantly using up their disk space quota, I've traced the problem to the fact that when they use illustrator it writes loads of 16.8 Mb files to their Library > Cache folder all called .afpdeleted followed by a series of numbers.

       

      This doesn't happen with any of the other users.

       

      He is using:

       

      Mac Pro 2.66Ghz 12Gb RAM

      OS X 10.7.5 ( this is as far as this mac can be updated)

      Network Home Login

       

      It is happening on illustrator CS6 and also on illustrator CC

       

      Any idea's what is happening and why it is only happening to this one user?

            All the Macs are identicle with the same OS, they are 2007 Mac Pros so unable to run 10.8

             

            It must be something specific to this user but I'm not sure what

                Tried this on a mac that is running 10.8.4 and the same problem happens, I guess this is something to do with having Network Home Users, is there a solution?
