"Confused about Cache Settings-NX2"



Is there any reason to keep a large cache (almost 100GB) file for my images? I have it stored on a separate drive but wonder if it is really necessary? I read a few threads where people have apparently deleted their cache files without problems. I suspect it may be slowing down NX2 performance. I am running NX2 on an older MacBook and OX 10.6 (Snow Leopard). I know the cache is a temporary file to be used if I open an image again but would welcome any suggestions about the best way to proceed. Thanks

How often do you open an image again ?

I have the time to open a Raw-Image without the cache.

I have turned it off.

Hi Gerold,
Thanks for responding. I don't open them up very often so it sounds like I should trash the cache file. (?)

I only use the cache during post-processing.
Once done I clear it.

Have a great time
