I'm busy authoring a blu-ray project in Adobe Encore and when I transcode it, it fills up my hard drive to bursting point - most notably "C:/Users/Nick/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Common/Media Cache Files" where there are about 40GB of files.

My actual project is on my secondary hard drive as are all my documents, music, videos etc.

There's loads of files in this Media Cache Files directory and I want to know whether I can delete them without it causing any problems. Are they temporary?

Cheeers

Buy a bigger hard drive?

Working with large files require a large hard drive.

Try renaming the folder then opening up your project. If it still functions then it's prob safe to delete.

I already have two and I'm not made of money. Buying a new hard drive isn't an option and it still doesn't answer my question.

I've done some research and the Media Cache Files can be deleted. They will be re-created by Premiere and Encore when needed.
