Set disk cache directory

Configures the directory that Google Chrome will use for storing cached files on the disk.

If you set this policy, Google Chrome will use the provided directory regardless of whether the user has specified the '--disk-cache-dir' flag or not. To avoid data loss or other unexpected errors this policy should not be set to a volume's root directory or to a directory used for other purposes, because Google Chrome manages its contents.

See https://www.chromium.org/administrators/policy-list-3/user-data-directory-variables for a list of variables that can be used.

If this policy is left not set the default cache directory will be used and the user will be able to override it with the '--disk-cache-dir' command line flag.
