SSD Drive for VideoPad Cache


Recommended Posts

Has anyone installed an SSD & set the VideoPadCache folder to be on the SSD? Interested to know if that speeds up Video Pad in loading a new design. Always takes nearly 1+ hours on my Win10 Pro machine - fast processor & 16 Gb ram - so looking for more optimization in using an SSD

Thx - Terry

Never saw caching time take that long even on complex, multi-track and effect projects when using a conventional drive.

The program now runs and caches on a 1TB SSD, which did improve loading speeds.  Share a project that loads slowly and others may test it for comparison.

Just follow these steps closely...

  •     Back up --- With your project on the timeline, click on MENU at the top-left.  Click FILE|BACK UP PROJECT FILES TO FOLDER.  Choose a folder and SELECT FOLDER.
  •     Upload ---  Use a free server - Google Drive, MS OneDrive, etc.* - to upload the saved, numbered FOLDER.    Do NOT upload the individual VPJ or export file. 
  •     Get link --- Get a public link.  If using Google Drive click GET SHAREABLE LINK. If necessary change "restricted" to "anyone with the link can view" 
  •     Share ---     Click COPY LINK | DONE.  Paste that link here, or click the folder at the top-right of this forum to message it privately to me.  It won't be shared.

          *    Before uploading, right-click the folder, click PROPERTIES.  Look at the File Size to confirm that it's not too big for the free space on the server.
