Hmm... I have discovered that there is a folder into USERS\XXXX\APPDATA\LOCAL\BITWIG STUDIO\CACHE\ called "SAMPLES" that has lots of folders inside of it and which properties says that it has Gb's of size, with more than 60.000 files (I got bored and I closed the window before it finished the count).

My question is: ¿Could I erase the content of ..\CACHE\SAMPLES ? I assume that this is NOT the folder where I have my samples, which are placed into C:\samples\ so I think I could delete that content?

Any help? Thanks in advance!

Yes, you can delete it at any time and in the Bitwig Studio preferences, you can limit the cache to a certain size.

On Mac, the folder is /Users/xxx/Library/Caches/Bitwig

BTW, when sample is replaced on disk, cache can't recognize the change and still plays the old file which is cached. I can count that as a bug, it's very inconvenient. Scratched my head for about 30 mins until I realized why I can't change samples.
