Tons of files in cache

  • Description:
    I have 383 files in my Cache on my Mac under the Opera folder.
    Steps to reproduce:

    1. On a Mac Go to folder ~/Library/Caches
    2. Under com.operasoftware.Opera then go to Media Cache
    3. This is where the insane amount of cache files are

    I was trying to figure out why my system storage levels were so high on my MBA. Over 50% of my drive was being used by the System Files. I searched online and step one was removing Cache Files and when I went to Opera I found all these files.

  • Just went to the regular Cache folder and there are 1288 files in there.

  • I have only Caches in my user Library, not Caches 2. There is not much data in the Opera directories because I clear browser data before I exit Opera.

  • I have only Caches in my user Library, not Caches 2.

    The 2 after 'cache' refers to step 2 as it seems.

  • Opera for Windows here. Cache has 2500+ files in it and Media Cache has 345.

    Those numbers are normal.
