C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp\Adobe\After Effects>

has two directories.




12.0 takes 8GB

12.1 takes 4GB

Can I remove 12.0?

How about 12.1 also?

Each one has this big directory within it

C:\Users\harvey\AppData\Local\Temp\Adobe\After Effects\12.0\Disk Cache - compname.noindex

This question came from our site for Graphic Design professionals, students, and enthusiasts.

Welcome to GD. At this time this seems to be off-topic because it is tech support and that is off-topic on GD. I would suggest, if you would like, migrating this question to Super User or asking Adobe's tech support forum. – Darth_Vader Aug 24 '14 at 15:26
@Matt I can't migrate it. I see no option. Can you migrate it to superuser? – barlop Aug 24 '14 at 16:06

Yes, of course you can. This is a temporary folder, that allows you load previous Ram Previews. But don´t worry, because AE CC it´ll create this folder again. I repeat, it´s just a temporary folder from your Ram Previews.
