Setting Cache Drive desitination

Question

I have set up three Onedrive clouddrives in windows 10. I have pooled them into one.

My question is how do I set the location of the cache?

I have it set to expandable on all clouddrives and I have noticed that one of my Physical drives in the other pool is being used for the expandable cache..

This is not really a problem. But I might get an SSD for this purpose instead. Not have the SSD part of the  pool and just use the SSD for the cloud drive cache.

My question is...Can I do this, and if so how?

I'm uploading 600GB to the cloud but the space on the cache drive cloud drive has decided to use is 437GB will this cause issues?

Thanks!

You can change the cache location by detaching and reattaching the drive to the system from the UI. It will prompt you for the cache location and type whenever it is attached.

Thanks, I did this but I couldn't choose my USB 3 Drive

Is there no way I can use a USB 3 Drive for Cache?

 

Thanks

There are some inherent flaws with USB storage protocols that would preclude it from being used as a cache for CloudDrive. You can see some discussion on the issue here: 

I don't believe they ever added the ability to use one. At least not yet.
