File cache full


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I'm working with a system of 4 WatchTowers and running into an issue with my media cache filling up.  Each computer has one hard drive with two partitions apiece.  One partition is about 15gb and just for OS/apps, the other is much larger and meant as a workdrive.  Watchout is installed on the apps partition.  The media cache seems to default to locating itself on the app partition and it is filling up quickly.  Is there a way to move the cache to the other partition and is there anything else I'm missing?  Thanks!

It's each Show's cache that fills up, and that is by design.

If you delete it, it will fill up next time each Show needs to be opened and used.

Of course you can delete whole Shows not used to save space, located in the

"Program Files (x86)/Dataton/WATCHOUT 5/Shows" folder on a Display PC


In a scenario with two partitions or preferably, two SSD's/HDD's, WATCHOUT

should be installed on the Media partition/SSD, not on the OS partition/SSD.


This is the first step in our Windows 7 Tweaking list, enclosed below.

As Jonas say, the easiest solution is to install WATCHOUT on the large data partition, since WATCHOUT by defaut stores its show files on the same partition as it is installed. However, an alternative if you prefer to keep the app on the system/app partition is to use a command line option to direct the show files to another drive/partition. See here:
