Plex Media Server – Cache Folder 이동

The Plex Media Server cache resides in %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Plex Media Server
NOTE: For XP – C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Plex Media Server

If your drive is running out of space you can move it to another location by:

  • Close Plex Media Server from the System Tray
  • Use Robocopy to copy the cache folder to a new location e.g. D:\Plex Media Server

    Execute – Robocopy.exe “C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Plex Media Server” “D:\Plex Media Server” /E

    NOTE1: Windows Explorer is unable to copy some files (com.plexapp.agents.thetvdb_4ccc065777fa44d06bbc4542ac5544325fc53bbf)
    NOTE2: If using XP – Robocopy is part of the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools available here – http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/confirmation.aspx?id=17657 18

  • Rename the “C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Plex Media Server” folder to “Plex Media Server_OLD”
  • Open Regedit.exe, browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Plex, Inc. -> Plex Media Server and create a String Value called “LocalAppDataPath”. Set its value to D:<br>
    NOTE3: On Win 7 – You could instead use the mklink comand to create a link from C:\Users\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Plex Media Server to D:\Plex Media Server
  • Restart Plex and ensure it’s working
  • Delete the renamed Plex Media Server_OLD folder

    Open cmd.exe and Execute – Rmdir /S “C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Plex Media Server_OLD”

    NOTE4: Windows Explorer is unable to delete some files (Refer to NOTE1)
