Lightroom 3.x and CameraRaw cache

Not many people noticed, but Adobe back ported a feature from the upcoming Lightroom 4 into the 3.x series. The CameraRaw cache folder was full of large files (about 10MB each), but the new engine creates much smaller, compressed, files (about 500K each).
So the key point is: clear your cache (from Lightroom preferences) and reserve a smaller space.

If CameraRaw finds an old, large file it will leave it there, but new files are always created small
