Huge cache folder (>5gb), in 2 locations, in 1 week

  • Hello,

    I've recently installed vivaldi (less than one week), and I'm really surprised by the huge cache folders that this browser creates on my computer.
    Folder 1:
    C:\Users***\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Cache

    Folder 2:
    C:\Users***\AppData\Local\Packages\44576milosp.OneCommander_p0rg76fmnrgsm\LocalCache\Local\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Cache

    Does anyone have any ideas why, first 1 have two locations for the cache ? (And what is this weird folder "44576milosp.OneCommander_p0rg76fmnrgsm"). The, why is it that huge ?

    Thanks for any hints.

    You use the program OneCommander who creates such files.

  • You can use program ChromeCacheView to check what's inside vivaldi cache (1'st folder). Second cache is from another program, maybe it's duplicating cache from vivaldi?

  • Indeed, one of the folder is due to OneCommander. I don't understand why onecommander would create a cache for vivaldi 😕

    I used ChromeCacheView, and I see lot of jiberish, can't find any suspicious culprit. Is there anyway to prevent vivaldi to accumulate too much cache ?

    Actually, I can't even empty this cache with the vivldi>tools>clear all private data>all time.
    This option has absolutely no effect on the cache folder.

    Am I missing something ?

    Use parameter --disk-cache-size=SIZEINBYTES
