The local cache

The File Browser's Export Cache command writes a copy of the live cache files to the folder in which you're working. The Export Cache feature was designed to let you include the cache in a folder so that when you burn it to a CD or copy it to a different drive or machine, the cache information is already there, so the File Browser doesn't have to spend the time reading metadata and generating previews.

When you export the cache, three files are created in the folder on which you're working. AdobeP8M.md0 holds the metadata information, AdobeP8T.tb0 contains the small thumbnails, and AdobeP8P.tb0 contains the high-quality previews. Whenever you choose Export Cache, all three files are updated to reflect the current state of the File Browser. So, they not only serve as an aid in speeding up the handling of folders transferred to a different location or burned to a CD or DVD, they also provide a useful fallback position if things do, in fact, go wrong—see Figure 5-22.
