How to Delete the Adobe Cache in MacOS X

All the informational posts I found about this are videos, so here are simple, text-based instructions.

  1. Go to ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Media Cache Files
  2. Delete everything in there.
  3. Go up one level to the Media Cache folder & delete everything in there, too.
  4. Now go to ~/Library/Caches/Adobe.
  5. Pick one of the applications and navigate to [Application Name]/[Version No.]/Disk Cache.
  6. Delete everything in there.
  7. Go back to the list of Adobe applications and repeat steps 5 & 6 until you're satisfied. Some applications may not have a Disk Cache.
  8. Empty the trash.
