What is a BCT file?
A BCT file is a cache file generated by Adobe Bridge, an Adobe CreativeCloud (CC) file management application. It contains thumbnails created automatically by the application when browsing assets. BCT files are used for providing quick access to asset summary information.
BCT files are saved alongside .BC files, which together comprise Adobe Bridge's cache. The cache can be centralized or distributed, meaning that the files are either stored in one location or distributed to every folder being browsed. Users can set the caching option in the software.
NOTE: You can safely delete both BCT and BC files. However, Adobe Bridge regenerates them the next time you browse images in the application.
Common BCT Filenames
Adobe Bridge Cache.bct - Default name Bridge gives to BCT cache files.
How to open a BCT file
You should not attempt to open BCT files. Instead, Adobe Bridge references the metadata in the file and displays it for thumbnails when browsing assets.
