Multimedia Cache

Re: Multimedia Cache

Hi Bern (all),

I knew there was something else I wanted to ask you about at the meeting...

Now that the import tool has graced our lives, we all are importing images in batches larger than available space in the default cache. While you can up the size of your cache in Options, the amount of space required is often still larger than the size of many people's C:Drive.

Two part question/request/wish:

1)As I understand it, EMu currently transfers all files into the local cache before uploading them to the server - even if the files reside on the user's local computer. Would it dramatically affect performance if EMu could "trust" certain types of external connections? Maybe by a registry setting saying specific non-C internal hard drives and/or networked drives can be considered "local" and don't have to be duplicated in the cache? If the connection was dropped, the import would stop and an error log generated as per usual.


2)Barring the above, I was wondering it there could be a way to specify a different location for the default cache (C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\KESoftware\Cache). This way a second internal hard drive in the user's machine - pretty common - could provide a larger playing field for the image load. That said, would a location outside of the D&S area of Windows still provide the necessary cache clean up? Is that action set by Microsoft or deep within EMu?

You're the best Bern, thanks :)

Re: Multimedia Cache

Hi Rebecca,

I have a temporary solution for you which I have used in the past for computers with very limited space.

There's a Microsoft program (see link below) which enables you to link directories just like you can in UNIX.

It enables you to change:

C:\Documents and Settings\Warren\Local Settings\Application Data\KESoftware\cache

so it actually points to D:\cache or a variation.

If you (or anyone else) is interested please let me know and I can help you set it up.
