I have Office 2016 and use the Next Generation OneDrive Sync Client, both running under Windows 10.
My computer has two drives with one partition each:
- C: a small solid state disk for OS, applications and some hand-selected files that require high access speeds
- E: a large hard disk drive
My OneDrive libraries are set to sync with folders on drive E:.
I have attempted to upload 135 GB data spread over 85,377 files in 9,273 folders into one of my OneDrive libraries. During upload I realized that OneDrive builds up a huge
OfficeFileCache grew to 25 GB in size -
and then my C: drive was full. When this point was reached, OneDrive stopped working with the helpful error message "OneDrive stopped working".
I want to keep my
OfficeFileCache, and especially I want to keep cached files for the default 14 days. But I want the cache to be built on the E: drive.
So my question boils down to: How do I tell my system to build the
OfficeFileCache on the E: drive instead of the C: drive?

OfficeCacheLocation does not seem to be respected by Office 2016 or the Next Generation OneDrive Sync Client, neither in
