Hi,
"Library/Caches/Adobe/Lightroom/Video/Media files" cache
folder is eating ALL the available space of my HD. Videos files are constantly scanned and copied in this folder, even after purging the cache, and this directory out of control is now over 150 gb on my small SSD drive.

All my file are on an external storage drive for good reason.

I just can't use this software as it kills my HD space. There should be a way to limit the size of this folder (the option in the preferences DON'T have any effect on this folder) or move it. Better: we should be able to prevent this behavior: there is no point in limiting the size of this folder if the system keeps indexing videos continuously, overwriting files contantly to respect the size limit of the folder.

Disabling video caching would be best.

I thought that this was what the switch "Limit Video Cache Size" was supposed to control. Have you tried it (in Preferences)? I don't do much video in Lightroom, but my cache is 2.6 GB and my limit is 3 GB.
