What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 11 running on? For now I will assume Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit.
Please go to Expert workspace Edit Menu/Preferences/Scratch Disks, and tell us where the Scratch Disks are directed (especially
the one named Media Cache).
The default location for these Scratch Disk is Libraries/Documents/Adobe/Premiere Elements/in your case 11.0. Are you looking
in the Media Cache Files Folder there for the conformed audio (cfa and pek sets)? If so, the Edit Menu/Preferences/Scratch Disks and
the Media Cache location may indicate that is not the location for those conformed audio.
Please double check the above and let us know the outcome.
windows 7. I-7 processor. Did that. I am a user, our comp admin put a shortcut folder for the media cache files on the desktop. I think he also simply turned off my autosave files too. Nothing in that folder either
Let us focus on the Media Cache Files Folder. If you open Premiere Elements 12 and go to Edit Menu/Preferences/Scratch Disks, what does it show specifically for the location of Media Cache?
Does it show
"C:\Users\owner\Documents\Adobe\Premiere Elements\11.0\Media Cache Files"
If you right click the Media Cache Files Folder on the Desktop and go to Properties/General, what do you see for Location:?
yup, found them. It now has a custom file path. Can I dump all this?
Thanks for the reply. Good news that you located those Media Cache Files.
The files in the Media Cache Files Folder (representing conformed audio cfs and pek) can be deleted. But, keep in mind that the program will automatically generate them again when and if it decides it needs them.
Same situation with the Media Cache Database that has the conformed video (.mcdb) files. You can delete the .mcdb files, but the program will automatically generate them again when and if it decides it needs them. No matter what you do that Media Cache Folder will always bounce back to its default location. It is not set in the Edit Media/Preferences/Scratch Disk area. But, you can set that Media Cache Database area (conformed video area) as to limit for Media Cache size and automatic monthly clean out. Please see

Got it. Thank you. Now in Photoshop elements 11. My lasso tool is giving me the 50% error. I understand this is a common problem and I see postings on how to fix in the more robust versions. How do I fix in this one?
Ordinarily Photoshop Elements questions get referred to the Adobe Photoshop Elements Forum here.
But, I will put my Photoshop Elements hat on and give you the answer that I think (almost sure) will work for you.
Here goes. If it does not work, then back to the Premiere Elements hat.
Click on the Lasso Tool in the Photoshop Elements 11 Expert workspace. Look to the bottom of the workspace, to the Lasso
option panel. Make sure that the "Feather" is set at 0. The following is a screenshot when I had the Feather set greater than
0 and I made a relatively small selection with the Lasso Tool.
So, explore Feather 0 or Feather greater but larger selection. Consider Feather = 0.
Please let us know if any of that worked for you.
I'm an idiot. I' ve been bouncing between lasso, selection, zoom, feather and screwed the numbers...all good here now. All operator error. (Tips hat)
Great news of success. Glad the Photoshop Elements information worked for you.
