    Change location of VIDEO media cache files folder

    joão luísd80791698

      Hello everybody

      I use Lightroom 6 (not the CC version) on a PC with Windows 7 installed.

      I use Lightroom for my photography 95% of the time. However, I intend to take advantage of its basic video handling abilities to quickly manage organization of video content (family and the occasional trip) as well as to do some basic color correction prior to editing the files on another application.

      I am trying to change the location of the folder C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Adobe\Lightroom\Caches\Video\Media Cache Files from my 240GB SSD drive to my 3.4TB HDD. I looked everywhere for a solution for this problem, but did not manage to find it. I am sure there must be a way.

      Right now, I have created a catalog just for my video files (350GB) and the media cache folder is 66GB already. I am not done with adding all my video files to the Video Catalog and I am already running dangerously low on space on my SSD (primary drive).

      Your help is greatly appreciated!
