Help - SSD filling up

HitFilm Express is filling up my SSD with its temp files.

Question: Is there any way to set HitFilm Express to clean up this location more frequently?

C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Local\FXHOME\HitFilm Express\cache\Timeline\files

Files are in the format:

xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx-hffr

There are:

Files: 1,182,459

Size on Disk: 223 GB

File Size Range: 1 KB – 573 KB

Dates range from: Oct 7, 2022 - Oct 21, 2022

Yeah, they are small files, but there are so many of them they are taking up almost half my SSD.

I understand these are temp files, and are deleted on a monthly basis, but there are 1,038,378 files, 194 GB, just in the last week.

    After much searching I finally found it.

    Answering here so that others will not have to deal with this issue.

    Go to: File|Options|Cache|Timeline|Keep Unused Files: Select the number of days you want to keep files.

    I calculated based on dates and volume in directory, and reduced from 30 to 1 day. YMMV.

    Good Luck all.
