[Closed] DerivedDataCache - 3 GB on C:
My colleague and I are wondering if it would not be possible to have C: - ProgramData - Epic be moved elsewhere?
The folder DerivedDataCache within that folder in particular is huge. We run SSD drives for C:\ that hold nothing more than the OS, and we've specifically moved away temp folders from C:\ also to save space/fewer write operations to the SSD's but we are stuck with this Epic folder.

Yes, you can use any cache hierarchy you like for the DDC.
In the BaseEngine.ini file. I beleive you will normally be using RocketDerivedDataBackendGraph, but the other ones have useful examples.
You can delete the DDC. You will have to rebuild some assets if you do. Migrations of DDCs is also possible with some clever cache hierarchies. For example, DerivedDataBackendGraph migrates from AltShared to Shared.
