Lightroom creates thousands of cache files which takes up a lot of size

So I have a hard drive that only has a lightroom catalog inside. After using lightroom when I open that drive, it has the main lightroom folder, and thousands of cache files created by lightroom.

 

Whenever I delete these cache files, they appear again after using lightroom. Last time it created 2500 files, with 5gb just by using lightroom once. What the hell is this and how do I fix it?

 

Thank you!

Hi Marilia,

Welcome to the Adobe Community!

As Lightroom is creating thousandes of cache files, could you please let us know the version of Lightroom and the Operating System you're working with?

 

You may have a look at this article and use optimal settings in Lightroom to see if it helps with the issue: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/lightroom-classic/kb/optimize-performance-lightroom.html#Useoptimalsettin...

Hello!

 

I am running the latest version of the CC apps (although I've had this problem for a few months) and it's running on a windows 10 machine. I've tried many options but nothing works. 😕 any ideas?

Sounds like you are using Lightroom Classic, not Lightroom, and have set the location of the Camera Raw cache to that disk. That is a setting in Preferences - Performance.
