Bridge CC: Freeze after cache error message

When using Bridge CC I keep getting the message ' Bridge encountered a problem and is unable to read the cache. Please try purging the central cache in Cache Preferences to correct the situation.' This then causes Bridge to freeze. Have been purging the cache and it's not making any difference.

I'm not getting this problem with CS 6. Using OSX 10.8.5

Thanks

That means that the sqllite database is corrupt for some unknown reason - could be a disk error, OS bug, or crashed while still writing to the database.

Purging the entire cache should delete and recreate the database file (Preferences -> Cache -> Purge Cache).

Purging a single directory cache won't help.

So then you need to check your disk for problems, since the database is being corrupted repeatedly.

Thanks, Chris!
I ran the Mac disk repair then went to each photo folder and removed the cache files manually. This seems to have fixed the problem.

I've been receiving this error on and off for years. I've done everything from purging the central cache (as it says) to completely uninstalling and downloading a new version of adobe bridge. None of this ever fixes the problem.

I finally found one thing that worked. You can actually reset bridge to it's factory defaults by holding down a couple keys at startup.

Here's a blog post that explains how it's done.

Hopefully this will help others!
