Clearing Flash Cache

Sometimes it seems we empty everything we can but still that little flash item won't refresh. This has bugged me for years whenever I've done web development, but sometimes it's just good to know you can flush the "Flash" cache.

My web guy emailed me this today:

If you’re viewing a website, and are having problems with any flash application, use this web page below from Adobe to clear saved flash content on your machine.

Go to the website storage settings tab and select “delete all sites”.

This will effective allow you to flush all Flash stuff from your computer. I was surprised how much there was!

I'm having a problem with flash caching xml data and not updating when I change the xml file. Is there a good clean way of flushing the cache? - Arunabh Das

Don't forget to update your Adobe Flash in the browser that you wish to use.

Updating it should fix any errors that you are receiving and give you the latest and greatest version. A newer version was recently released.
