Remove old caches

Hi,

 

I am short on space on my C drive and I noticed that there are a lot of folders under C:\Users\bogc\AppData\Local\JetBrains:

DotCommonShellIRemoteTimelineEnvironmentZone
Installations
plugins
ReSharper
ReSharperPlatformVs14
ReSharperPlatformVs15
Shared
Transient

 

What folders are safe to remove?

 

Can I remove Installations, for instance? It takes up about 1.8GB and it contains the following folders:

dotCover11
dotMemory11
dotPeek11
dotTrace11
Packages
ReSharperPlatformVs15_46a41de9

 (an update: I think this is where the software got installed, so I don't think it is safe to remove them).

Thanks

Hello!

 

Thank you for contacting us.

You are right, Installations folder contains all binaries, deleting this folder will remove ReSharper and other tools.

You can safely delete Transient folder as it's the one that stores ReSharper caches. You can configure this folder by ReSharper option - ReSharper | Options | Environment | General | Caches | Store solution caches in.

Thank you.
