Partner Channel / Windchill

When using Windchill PDMLink together with Creo Parametric a local cache where all Workspace files are saved, is created.

The cache folder can sometimes get corrupted, specially if the Workspaces contain large amounts of files or if there is a large amount of Workspace in use. Therefore it is recommended to clear the local cache folder every now and again to avoid any potential problems.

This guide describes how.
