DerivedDataCache Location

Hi all. Was trying to find what was taking up so much space on my SSD so i fired up WinDirStat and that showed that this folder “C:\Users horax\AppData\Local\UnrealEngine\Common\DerivedDataCache” is using up around 17GB.

Any ideas if its possible to relocate this to another drive?

What is the DerivedDataCache used for by UE4?

Cheers all, much appreciated!

Compiled shaders for one. I think you can use the “symbolic link” technique as per for VaultCache: http://nerd-time.com/change-vault-cache-path-ue4/

Awesome. Thought I might have to resort to symlinks. Which is all good.

Cheers!
