Clean up files safely

Post by crispyjones » Fri May 15, 2020 3:06 pm

Did a file audit on my FFAStrans machine. Freed up a lot of space after finding a bunch of old downloaded web videos. What I have left isn't taking up much space but I am curious. I believe FFAStrans from 1.0 up uses \FFAStrans\Processors\db\cache\ as detailed on the wiki. I found a similar directory structure in \FFAStrans\Processors\.cache\ that don't appear to have been touched since I upgraded to 1.0. Can I just go ahead and delete the .cache directory and everything in it? I am always leery of deleting anything with a . at the front and wanted to run it by the devs.

Hi crispyjones,

Yes, you can delete the .cache folder. It's no longer used unless you yourself use it for something. There are no inbuilt references anymore to this location except when upgrading from older pre. 1.0.0 versions.
