Disk Space Disappears Quickly while using Adobe Premiere Pro

    Disk Space Disappears Quickly while using Adobe Premiere Pro

    You receive frequent warnings that your disk space is above 90% full, or you cannot open or create more files, and you use Adobe Premiere Pro for your projects.

    Adobe Premiere Pro creates temporary files that serve as a preview of your projects while you work. The files are stored in your home space and quickly fill up your disk limit.


    1. Open Adobe After Effects.
    2. Choose Edit > Preferences > Media (Windows) or Premiere Pro > Preferences > Media (Mac OS).

    3. To remove conformed and indexed files from the cache and to remove their entries from the database, click Clean. This command only removes files associated with footage items for which the source file is no longer available.
    Important: Before clicking the Clean button, make sure that any storage devices that contain your currently used source media are connected to your computer. If footage is determined to be missing because the storage device on which it is located is not connected, the associated files in the media cache is removed. This removal results in the need to reconform or reindex the footage when you attempt to use the footage later.
