This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom 6.2.1: Video Cache is out of control

In LR CC 2015, I can change the location for the camera raw cache, and limit its size. In the same preference panel, there is an option to limit the video cache, but no option to change its location. Currently, LR puts the video cache on my (small!) boot SSD, where I'd like to have it on my (big!) other SSD. That prevents LR from creating a slide show that combines images and video, as it runs out of cache memory (I observe the drive is full and the files sit in the LR app data folder (this is Windows). I do not even get an error message from LR, it runs forever -- however, once I then kill LR, the drive has enough space again. Currently I cannot use LR for that simple task.

I'd also like to be able to do this, but there's no option for it.

I'd also like to have this capability. I have a very large collection of video files and a small boot SSD.

Yes! The video cache can potentially get very large, so we need the ability to choose the location to prevent maxing out the system drive!
