Having to use, Purge HDF5 Cache, quite often?

Do others find themselves having to use, Purge HDF5 Cache, quite often?
Just wondering if I'm the only one. :)


  • Hey @theoryshaw, what does this do?

    I'm not 100% sure. :)
    I just know if I've exhausted all other troubleshooting measures on an error, that sometimes this works to correct that error.
    Here's one example of an error that was fixed running it....

    Sometimes when you run Purge HDF5 Cache you get something like this error.

    If that be the case, i've found if you create a new blank IFC and save it somewhere as just a temp.ifc (throw away file) that you can then run Purge HDF5 Cache without an error.
    After that, you can reopen the .ifc file you were working on, and hopefully the error is gone. :)
    And then if you go (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start) on your controller, you get unlimited lives. ;)

  • I've got the permission error every now and then too when saving the ifc file, I suspect this is a Windows only error (tm). Usually trying to save again works immediately, I've never purged the HDF5 cache but I'll try next time I encounter this kind of bug.
