CorruptedCacheException: Corrupted IndexBlock 298298 found in cache '/Users/macuser/.gradle/caches/journal-1/file-access.bin'
I had the same issue on a mac as well.
- Open your /Users/macuser/ folder
- Press CMD + SHIFT + . (dot/period) to view hidden folders
- DELETE .gradle folder
- Restart Android Studio
This will cause Android Studio to rebuild and re-download your .gradle folder fixing your corrupt files in the process.
NOTE* I'm looking for experienced programmers to let us know if this is safe / correct to do so! It worked for me with no errors but i'm new to this so a second opinion would be appreciated.
I'm on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04) and I got this error also. I had to:
- go to ~/.gradle/caches/journal-1
- delete all the files
- close Android Studio
Open Android Studio and everything is fixed again. You have to restart Android Studio for the fix. it must store those files in memory or something.
