You can adjust and view the LucidLink cache through the control panel or with the command-line interface 'lucid cache' and 'lucid config' commands.
Locate the LucidLinklogo within the Taskbar to access the control panel. Type your password and select Open control panel.
Navigate to settings and local cache size. The default cache is 5GB and can be increased to 1TB.
Ensure you have sufficient free disk space available or change where your cache is stored on disk, please review how to link to your Filespace with a specific cache location.
Lucid cache can be used to see the current cache configuration and turn the cache on or off.
