solution 2: Delete Cache

Cache Location

Pcloud now offers the possibility to set

  • Cache location (new)
  • Cache size

Option1: We should choose a quick drive.

C is often a SSD quick, but it has little space.


Directory of pcloud cache –> Move to a different drive that has more space.

Cache Location


Make Space for cache, if you have little space

  • Disable Pcloud start
  • Delete Pcloud cache (local, locallow, remote folder under user) –> Tuneup Space Explorer

Change cache Directory to g:\zzzPcloud Cache

On all computers pCloud is using the new cache folder now.
