I am a happy Windows user. For some time now with an Intel i7, 12 GB RAM, 5 TB on 3 drives plus a Intel Solid State drive (my C: system disk), on Win7/64.
I try to keep my SS C: drive as clean and lean as possible, it is only 80 GB. However, in a couple of month it grew with 17 GB. It turns out that it is the C:\ users\(...)\Adobe\CameraRaw\Cache\ directory with many Cache0000012345.dat files, all 5.11 MB each. They are made by Lightroom, in spite of the name.
What I would prefer, is to put the USERS directory to another drive, but that seems to be not an easy operation.
Second best is to get the (...)\Cache directory elsewhere. I read on the Internet that MKLINK /D (a DOS command) can be used for that, but I am not sure about the right syntax.
Does any of you has a suggestion how to handle this? Are there more or better ways to get C: to the bare minimum – the operating system?
