Built-in option to delete media cache
There's a lot of problems where "delete your media cache" is the suggestion. There should be an option within Premiere to fully clear the cache rather than having to do it from Finder/Explorer.

This should be marked as Resolved. This is a feature of Preferences > Media. Do so with all projects closed for best results as you can delete ALL of the media cache that way.

Jim, it works in Ae just fine and things don't get locked up. purging cache should be available as a quick shortcut for those who want it and it should just clear up the cache (green bar) same as it does in Ae

This could be problematic at the OS level, where files get locked up when they're open in a program. Doing it from Explorer/Finder prevents that issue.
