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 10TB.
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.
It might make sense in certain configurations to relocate your cache to an alternate location.
The default location for your cache is within the client root-path which resides within a .lucid folder inside your user profile or home directory depending on your operating environment.
Reasons for moving your cache could be to dedicate a drive to your cache to increase the size for pinning files and folders or to benefit a workflow which requires additional space.
It is best practice that the cache location be your fastest disk within a system, preferably a Solid-state drive (SSD).
Ensure your alternate cache location remains accessible at all times.
If utilizing a removal-media, ensure that power management is set accordingly to stop the drive going to sleep and do not eject the drive while LucidLink client is connected.
The Lucid cache can be used to see the current cache configuration and turn the cache on or off.
