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:
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 in C:\Users\Hauke\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\15.0\OfficeFileCache. The 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?
By the way: I already tried to modify the system registry as suggested here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/onedrive-wastes-my-ssd-drive-space/981f06da-776b-4e1f-9f88-35db77461e92 Unfortunately the key OfficeCacheLocation does not seem to be respected by Office 2016 or the Next Generation OneDrive Sync Client, neither in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Internet nor in the ...\16.0\... one.

A tag is a keyword or label that categorizes your question with other, similar questions. Choose one or more (up to 5) tags that will help answerers to find and interpret your question.
► complete the sentence: my question is about...
► use tags that describe things or concepts that are essential, not incidental to your question
► favor using existing popular tags
► read the descriptions that appear below the tag
If your question is primarily about a topic for which you can't find a tag:
► combine multiple words into single-words with hyphens (e.g. windows-7), up to a maximum of 35 characters
► creating new tags is a privilege; if you can't yet create a tag you need, then post this question without it, then ask the community to create it for you
