Opera 40 newbie -- can I set custom cache location?

  • Longtime fan of Opera 12.18 which did everything I need it to perfectly! Growing concerns about security and such may drive me to Opera 40x -- haven't tried it yet -- I'm aware of the major differences and one of them will probably be a dealbreaker for me: I need to be able to set a custom cache location (to a ramdisk). Can this be done?

    I've searched and found nothing about it anywhere. Hard drive profile folder is fine, just need the browser cache folders on the virtual disk. Any info gratefully appreciated!

  • You need to use a command line for that. Do a search for Chromium command lines.

  • Thanks. Are you referring to the

    –disk-cache-dir="XX"

    argument? Can you / anyone confirm this works for Opera?

  • Are you referring to the
    –disk-cache-dir="XX"

    Yeah, that one.
