Bypassing SSD for caching to an external HDD

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am currently working from a laptop with an SSD. Is there a way I can bypass the SSD (C:/ drive) when caching simulations, and cache them directly on an external HDD (D:/ drive for example)?

I don't mean only in terms of path - which of course can be done easily, but also in terms of temp files and the bunch. Mainly to not use my main SSD read/write cycles.

Thank you!

Houdini has an environment variable called 

HOUDINI_TEMP_DIR

You can set this in the houdini.env to something like 

HOUDINI_TEMP_DIR=D:\houdini_temp

and it should write all temporary files to that directory.
