I'm using macOS Mojave beta and I'm trying to find out where Quick Look cache data is stored.
As of High Sierra, I found the Terminal command to open the path of Quick Look cache data:
But when running Mojave beta, my Mac doesn't have any files in that path (I haven't cleared the cache at all and checked with
qlmanage -r enable), I frequently used Quick Look though.
Quick Look works fine but I'd like to know why my Mac doesn't store cache data.
This is the output of command:
sudo lsof -c quicklookd
But I don't see anything in the directory via Finder.
If I tried it through Terminal. It says the issue in terms of permission. I have completely no idea what this permission comes from:
~ (166) $cd /private/var/folders/ff/3m1y9syj5cd_vhjpgy0yy5c00000gn/C/com.apple.QuickLook.thumbnailcache cd: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: Operation not permitted /private/var/folders/ff/3m1y9syj5cd_vhjpgy0yy5c00000gn/C (171) $ls -l | grep quicklook ls: com.apple.QuickLook.thumbnailcache: Operation not permitted
