Using Cubase 10.0.20 under Windows 10, when I save a preset (VST3 Preset or FX Chain Preset), the saved preset thereafter does not show up in the list of presets immediately. To get the preset to show up, I have to either restart Cubase or rescan the disk in MediaBay.
CAUSE: I found that the cause for this behaviour is that my Documents folder (C:\Users\MyUser\Documents) is a junction that points to another drive (in my case F:\Users\MyUser\Documents). The presets are correctly saved in “Documents\VST3 Presets” or “Documents\Steinberg\FX Chain Presets”, but they just aren’t immediately recognised by Cubase, apparently because of the junction in the path. (I verified that not using a junction on the same system resolves the issue.)
It would be great if this issue could be resolved in a future update. I have had this issue for years, and the MediaBay rescan workaround just isn’t optimal.
I would also be happy with a workaround that would allow me to make another directory (with no junctions in its path) the default storage location for my presets, but I have found no way of configuring these paths.
