    LR Message

    I was working in LR3 and a message pops up that said the C drive, which contains the LR catalog folder is critically low on space and to empty trash and free up at least 20GB of space.

    I go to the C drive and it shows 567GB of free space? What am I missing. Speak slowwwlllllyyyyy in computer speak.

    Check if your recycle bin is empty, Lucy. Perhaps this could help.

    I did empty it. I think it freed up 4 GB. Maybe it was a fluke. I was wondering where you were today and here you are.

    If clearing up the recycle bin didn't work try this approach:

    Inside Lightroom, go to EDIT > PREFERENCES > FILE HANDLING then go to the last option "camera raw cache settings". Increase your cache size (mine is set to 1.0GB which is 1/2 of my RAM) so my wild guess would be to increase your cache setting by 1/2 your available RAM size. Hope this helps, Lucy.

    Thank you. I bet that is is. I'll do that as well as go through and delete all the RAW files that aren't worth saving. You sure have a broad range of knowledge about lots of things.

    I think so. No message popped up so that must mean something.

    Optimizing the catalogue usually helps.

    Thanks, Antonio. I think I remember reading about that on the LR Killertips site, but neglected to change anything.
