How do I clear my ARDI-VE Cache?ARDI-VE maintains a cache of the content on your server - it keeps copies of your 3D models and textures on your local machine so you don't need to download them when you connect, saving a significant amount of time.
Although ARDI checks the integrity of these cache files during connection, there is still a small chance that some sort of damage might occur that would corrupt your cached files. In which case you'd need to clear the cache.
Normally, you would only do this if specifically requested by support, or if you are critically low on hard drive space and would like to clear out the case of some of your infrequently used ARDI sites.
First, open your cache folder (see instructions below), then delete the folder that has the same name as your server. There may be an additional number at the end of the name (For example, if you were connected to ardi1.mycompany.com, you would delete the foloder ardi1_mycompany_com_80)
Finding the Cache Directory - Windows
Your cache files live in your Application Data folder.
- Copy the bold text (select it with the mouse and hit CTRL+C) - %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Optrix\ARDI VE
- Open the Start Menu and paste (CTRL+V), then hit Enter/Return
- This will open the folder where your log file and cache directories reside.
Finding the Cache Directory - Linux
Your cache folders can be found at $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/unity3d/Optrix/ARDI VE/ - this normally translates into ~/.config/unity3d/Optrix/ARDI VE/
Finding the Cache Directory - MacOS
Your cache folders can be found at ~/Library/Logs/Optrix/ARDI VE/
Finding the Cache Directory - Android
