•set where cached information is stored and when it gets cleared
•mappings between drive names and source code locations
The default settings are shown below:
•Cache Directory type directly or Browse to find a directory for Thread Validator to cache its information
By default, the cache is only flushed when the executable changes between sessions.
•Flush cache at each new session tick to flush the cache every session

•Flush cache when executable changes untick to prevent the cache being flushed at all
When not automatically flushing, you can manually flush the cache if necessary:
•Flush Cache flush the cache now
This is only possible when no sessions are in the session manager. The button will be disabled if any sessions are loaded.
