High disk usage
Running Ubuntu 13.04 and found high disk usage at folder /home/user/.cache/friends/avatars (about 5GB).
What is this used for?
Can I remove it files?
Re: High disk usage
I do not have such folder. It might be used by a chat program. Usually, it is safe to delete the contents of such a .cache folder: the contents will be recreated as needed.
The cache is there to speed up the display of avatars on a subsequent time. Deleting the cache will make certain avatars display more slowly the first time it is needed,
