A powermac 5200 fails to empty it's Netscape cache even though it is set for 5MB. The hard drive will fill up completely and freeze up if the cache is not emptied manually. What is the problem.

What happens when you set the cache size to zero? That's what mine is - and I have a RAMdisk as the place where the cache files are stored if I decide to store at all - I never store above a meg - it's not worth it. Everything in the RAMdisk is zapped at shutdown. Works well.

teacher: you haven't responded to my comment above, so you may not have got the message, and I am thus submitting the following as an answer.

The cache size nominated may not be recognized by the Netscape configuration. Empty what is in the cache and set it to 1 megabyte only. What you may lose by not having the file locally will be offset by the increased speed of the program, as it will have to match far fewer cache files against the site copies to look for date variations.

This figure of 1 meg may be more acceptable to Netscape, and will save you disk space.

I hope it now runs properly for you. If it still fills your hard drive, then reject my answer, but you may have to load in quite a few files before you fill the cache from scratch.
