Sublime gigantic backup folder

aristidesfl 5 years ago • updated by FichteFoll 5 years ago 3

I've found ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text/Backup and is taking about 500MB in space.

Inside, among others, a bunch of subfolders each taking exactly 24MB of a Clang plugin which I've used once and has been disabled since then.


What is this folder used for?

Oops! Mine was about 500MB as well. This folder is created by Package Control and apparently every time a package is changed, the old copy is moved here. Maybe there ought to be a setting to prune this directory by only keeping, say, backups newer than a month or so.


But it can safely be removed when it grows too large.

ok, so this has nothing to do with sublime, but with package control?
