The live cache

If you examine the contents of the File Browser's cache folder, you'll find it contains three files for each folder the File Browser has seen.

  • FoldernameXXX (where XXX is a three-digit number) is the cache for the camera-generated thumbnails

  • FoldernameXXXM (where XXX is the same three-digit number as the previous file) is the cache for the metadata. It stores the flagging and ranking information along with a copy of the camera-generated metadata. Images that have had metadata added, including Camera Raw settings, have all the image metadata stored in sidecar .xmp files that take precedence over the metadata in the File Browser cache, but the sort order, flagging, and ranking metadata exists only in the File Browser cache.

  • FoldernameXXXT (where XXX is the same three-digit number as the previous file) is the cache for the high-quality thumbnails and previews. It's usually bigger, sometimes much bigger, than the other two files—see Figure 5-21.

    The File Browser creates three cache files for each folder it has read.
