In PPCC I was able to successfully set my Media Cache location in
Preferences > Media
to my external hard drive. But since upgrading to PPCC2014, the media cache builds new files in the default location
Users > Library > Application Support > Adobe > Common
no matter what location I choose in Preferences > Media
I can't stop it from building those files there, and with a large project such as the one I'm on that collection of files is then divided between the two locations and it gets messy. Also, PPCC2014 often hangs on building those cache files in the Common folder.
My Project > Scratch Disks settings are also set to my external drive, so nothing is pointing to that internal location. The checkbox for "Save media files next to originals when possible" is not checked.
Any ideas? Many thanks!!
I think I have a similar issue, which I have not quite sorted out yet. As I had both CC and CS5.5 programme installed, I believe the registry was corrupted. There were entries there for several builds and one was pointing to the default location rather than the one I had selected. Changing that has almost cured the problem
Did you ever fix this?
I think this was a bug when opening older projects. Those created in the new version should respect the new location.
I also believe this was fixed with the 2014.2 update, so have you done that yet?
