Toast 20 Pro stores temporary files in MyDVD cache folder (FYI)

Recommended Posts

I am (still) having problems creating Blu-ray disks/disk images, with Toast crashing before finishing. Frustrations with not getting B-R disk images created aside, the crashes were creating temporary files that kept eating away at my home SSD, to the point where I had only 1.5 GB in my home SSD. After investigating the problem and examining my SSD's data map (using Disk Inventory X) I was able to locate where Toast was storing those files - in the

~/Users/[user account name]/Library/Caches/MyDVD folder.

The Library subdirectory is hidden, so to see it and its content you have to enable viewing of hidden files/folders: SHIFT-CMD-period [.]. 

The MyDVD naming convention is apparently an artifact of the time when the DVD/B-R capability was performed by an associated MyDVD app. 

While I'm still working on getting Toast to successfully generate a B-R disk image, ay least I'm now able to delete the temporary files in this cache folder (I got rid of over 40 GB of Toast schmutz).

Hopefully this information will be useful to someone.
