I just noticed that Media Browser has its own folder for Cached Image FIles and data. I also use media center master to retrieve data for movies, tv shows, and such and that info is saved in the files actual folder.

Does this cause any read troubles for the data, or slow down since there are two locations for Movie images? Would i be better suited deleting the Metadata that Media center master stored in each movies folder and allowing Media browser to cache it on the c drive? I ask this because i have a SSD drive coming for my OS boot and if it is reading immages off the SSD im sure it would load a hell of alot quicker than it does now (it is pretty slow now for 400+ movies)

To my knowledge, the images that MCM downloads are are basically the "master" images. Mediabrowser then caches these images into a database file for quick retrieval. If you have space on your ssd for the cached images I would definitely use it. My library of over 700 files loads almost instantaneously from my ssd. Don't delete the files downloaded by MCM. They will be needed if you ever need to rebuild your cache which may occasionally become corrupted. Also, if you have other HTPCs using the same library those "master" files will ensure consistency.

Fair enough

How about this: It's fine. Leave it how it is. Your ssd will speed everything up once it's installed.
