Tex Cache Folder

Hi,
I need some informations about the "User/Appdata/Local/OctaneRender/cache/texCache" folder.

Correct me if i'm wrong : since 2018 version compressed texture are cached on disk in this folder.

On expensive project. This folder can quickly get huge.

This can be a huge deal on small SDD as primary disk workstation.

Is there way to relocate this folder somewhere else on another disk ?

Could it be done at the Houdini level ?
Could it be done at the Octane StandAlone level ?
Could it be done at the OS level ?

Any workaround or any extra information to takle this problem ?

Hi,

I'm sorry, but as far as I know, currently the texture cache path can't be configured. I've not seen this option in the Standalone or in the SDK, although what I've seen in the Standalone is that you can configure the maximum cache size, so if you have storage problems, probably if you configure the size there, it will affect all the plugins.

Thanks,
