Recently we've been having heaps of changed with our animation machines, no prizes for guessing why thats happening.  We have a rather small root and /Users drive 250gig, but have a large media cache drive, for some users it has been configured correctly, but others it defaults to their Library directory, which quickly fills up the /Users drive.

I only have ssh access to the machines so I was wondering where these settings were stored, so I can write a script to change every user to the correct location. Or any other way to change this setting from command line.  I've spent 3 days trying to hunt this file down but have been unsuccesful.

Help me Adobe one kenobe community, you're my only hope.

Could you let me know which file?  I have run a find and grep on all the files in ~/Library and cannot find the setting.

I've looked in the obvious files like com.Adobe.AfterEffects.plist and com.Adobe.After Effects.16.0.plist The only references I can find to the directory are in the Most Recently Browsed directories preference item.

I've looked in /Users/Shared/ and even in /Library/Application Support/, although I know it's not a global setting because each user who logs in has to set the disk cache.

I've grep'd everything that a "defaults read" spits out and still cannot find it.

 

Could you please be a bit more specific in your answer.

Thanks
