I have a problem with my Archicad 11 scratch files!
The problem is that these files are occupying a lot of space on my HDD- 10 GB! The scratch files are in C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Graphisoft\ArchiCAD Cache Folder\ArchiCAD 11.0.0 INT R1 and i don't know if I can delete them from my computer? :?

Thank you!

If it's any help, the same folder on my computer only contains the .dat file, nothing else.

Speak to your reseller if you are concerned about the consequences of deleting them perhaps?

Generally scratch files can be discarded with impunity. Just to be safe you can copy them to a CD before you toss them. The real question is why the software is not deleting them for you.

Why doesn't Archicad delete scratch files automatically. Daisydisk shows 57gb worth of scratch files
