BlobCache for SharePoint 2013 not working

After a big server crash we received issues that the image rendition wasn't working anymore on a SharePoint 2013 intranet environment.

When viewing the Image Renditions options there was the message that the blob cache wasn't enabled:
"The blob cache is not enabled in this web application. Image renditions will not be generated until the blob cache is enabled. For information on turning on the blob cache, please review the product documentation."

Image Renditions

In the web.config the blob cache was enabled.
We disabled the cache and enabled the cache again, without succes.
Also several resets and Application pool recycles didn't work
The solution was to disable the cache and remove the folder containing the cache. After enabling the cache the error message disappeared and image rendition worked again.
