How to clear your cache

Clear your cache by following these steps:


Symphony Desktop Application (SDA)

1. Completely exit the Symphony application.

 

2. Navigate to the following location based on the relevant version of the SDA:

 

Version 3.x.x:

C:\Users\<your_username>\AppData\Roaming\Symphony or

C:\Users\<your_username>\AppData\Local\Symphony\Cache

Version 6.x.x and Version 9.x.x:

C:\Users\<your_username>\AppData\Local\Symphony\Cache

 

Note<your_username> is the local user, e.g. John.Smith

 

Note: The folder location was amended in during version 3 hence the 2 different folder locations.


Refer to the Knowledge Article found here on how to check the SDA version.
