Opera GX taking too much disk space.

  • So the other day I reinstalled opera gx because the folder was taking 25GB of my ssd. Now is taking 8GB and going up. Is a known bug?

    the folder with the file is that one:

    C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera GX Stable\File System\002\t\00

    pd: even if i delete cache files of that folder still there.

  • I could not verify this issue. This is my About box:


    The size of the profile tree structure is 261,476,238 bytes
    The size of the cache tree structure is 465,715,226 bytes

    Some questions:

    1. What web pages are you accessing?
    2. Do you have any extensions installed?
    3. Have you tried disabling or removing any extensions?

    So I use it for normal web browsing (outlook,gmail etc) and also for twitch.

    I deleted those Big gb files while opera gx was open and they delete just fine so i guess they are not that important¿?

    I use the extensions: install google chrome extensions by opera, and streamkeys wich allows me to control media of the sites with the keyboard keys.

    Is strange because it takes like 1-2 days to the files start growing in size. I dont remember it happening with normal opera and same extensions. Testing it now 😃

  • Been using Normal Opera for a few days. Space used is ok. Im back to Opera GX to check if this still happen
