CacheType — How to store data for previous time steps.
CacheType values are used by SetMeshDataCacheType and OOF.Settings.Mesh_Defaults.Data_Cache_Type to

Memory means that the data will be
stored in RAM, which is usually fast but limited in size. A value
Disk means that the data will be stored in

When storing data on disk, OOF2 decides where to store the
temporary files by looking for the name of a writable directory in

is set to the name of writable directory, OOF2 checks the
that order. If it still hasn't found a
writable directory, it raises an error and suggests setting
