Bridge can't access cache files on a network server!

Bridge has problems with cache files it has created on a network drive.

Bridge is now able to create cache files in each folder - also on a network drive. I can see the cache files sometimes with 150-500MB which bridge has created in the network folder but everytime I open the same folder, bridge starts to recreate the cache file..

on local folders it's working perfectly. I have the same problem on all other workstations in our office.

This is very anoyying and costs a lot of time! Hope you can help or patch?

thanks for your help

This sounds like a permissions issue. Do you have read/wright access to the volume where you're having trouble?

mhh, yes I think so... ?
Bridge is able to create the cache file. I can see it in each folder I open with bridge.. If I change the folder after it has finished it's super fast.. But after a few more folders it starts creating new cache files / overrites the first one..... After restarting Bridge every folder starts to create new cache...
The Server is a Synology Diskstation... Maybe this helps?
thanks

hey, I think I found out a littlebit more...
Bridge is loading the previews/reading files into the cache of the system and after it has finished it starts writing the .cache file into the folder which I've opened...
When I restart Bridge, the program starts again loading the files into the system-cache, without overwriting the .cache file.

Are you using synology disk access directly?
If so, Bridge can access it directly, but it needs the access to be mapped first on windows (at least on my case it was needed).
You can map, for example, the letter S:\ to be the direct access to your synology access with, of course read/write permissions full access.

Bridge then can use S:\... to have the cache mapped to.
Hope it helps!
