Have you ever received the following Adobe Bridge cache error message?
Bridge encountered a problem and is unable to read the cache. Please try purging the central cache in cache preferences to correct the situation
Anyone who has seen this knows that purging the central cache does nothing to help the problem. Luckily, there’s an actual solution for the Bridge cache issue.
After hours of searching over the past few years and countless reinstalls, I came across the real way to fix Adobe Bridge cache problems. I like to think of it as Bridge’s best kept secret.
The Adobe Bridge CC 2014 Factory Settings Reset
This little box will save you so much pain and suffering when it comes to Bridge not working right. Apparently it’s been part of the application for quite some time, but no one knows about it.
How do you reset Adobe Bridge CC 2014 to factory settings?
- Quit Adobe Bridge
- Hold down Command + Option + Shift
- While holding down the keys, open Bridge
- Tick the first two boxes (the third will be grayed out)
- Click “Ok”*
That’s it. You will be on your way to a happy relationship with Adobe Bridge once again.
The good news is that Bridge should be back to normal. Unfortunately, you will probably have to do this every couple months when Bridge starts acting up. I would rather the Application work right and have to reset my settings a few times a year than deal with it not working.
