Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

DerivedDataCache Eating Up Space.

UE4 seems to eat up space on SSD drive. Is there any simple solution to fix these problem. I copied all my projects to another drive because of these problem and still I don't have space for packaging. Is it possible to relocate it?? Thank you!!!

Product Version: UE 4.15

Why doesn't Epic recognize these issue . Not every one can afford 1GB SSD.

You don't need to move your projects, just change the derived datacache location:

just search for: "ue4 move derived data cache"

MY Project in my documents -- unreal .... is 100GB. So if i put that on separate drive... I have 100GB free of space. Since I don't use that project anymore. So no need to have that sitting on my C:drive but can't find anything that can potentially crash UE4 editor. I herd something about Menu in Unreal that let's you relocate the derived.?
