I noticed a sudden, precipitous drop in free space on my SSD. I tracked this down to Google Chrome's
AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Cache folder, which has somehow grown to ~70 gigs!
That seems unusual, but clearing a browser cache is no big deal, so I went through the usual route of "Clear browsing data", making sure to erase the cached images and files from the beginning of time. However, this only reduced the size of the
Cache folder by less than 100 megs.
How can I clear this (unreasonably?) large cache? Is it safe to simply delete the folder contents? How can I prevent my cache from growing to this size again?
