What is an .BC file?

.BC is Adobe Bridge Cache File

A BC file is a file browsing cache created by Adobe Bridge, a program used for managing files used with Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) applications. It contains metadata automatically generated by the application when a user browses images. BC files are used for summarizing image information more quickly.

BC files are saved with .BCT files, which store image thumbnails for the cache. Adobe Bridge's cache files may be either centralized or distributed, meaning they are stored in one location or distributed to every folder being browsed. Users can set the caching option in the software.

BC files have the name Adobe Bridge Cache.bc.

NOTE: It is safe to delete BC and BCT files from your hard drive. However, Adobe Bridge will regenerate them the next time you preview files in the application.
