Working with the new Premiere Pro CC 2017 (11.1) automatic Media Cache management tools to avoid unintended deletion of user media
Premiere Pro CC 2017 (11.1) introduced a new feature to manage and automatically remove aging and unnecessary media cache files. This feature was designed to assist users in managing existing project media cache files more easily. In the default location for media cache preferences, there is no issue. However, incorrect usage of this feature has the potential for unintentional file deletion.
To avoid this issue when setting up a custom Media Cache Files location, follow the instructions below.
The following scenarios have the potential for active cache files being deleted from projects.
- Setting the management settings to remove cache files too often
- Exceeding the amount of storage set for cache files
