Hi,

 

The Camera Raw Cache are important for the plug-in/app while processing the images. For more on why the cache are important, please check: https://forum.luminous-landscape.com/index.php?topic=25231

 

We do not have a way of blocking Camera Raw from Creating the cache but you can limit the amount of storage it uses for the purpose by going to the Preferences for Camera Raw, then Performance & changing the Maximum size.

The Camera Raw cache has one purpose: to speed things up. It keeps data handy so they don't have to be regenerated from scratch every time.

 

Is there a specific problem you're trying to fix?
