Cleaning ST3 or fresh install?


Hello I have ST portable version since 2014 or 2013. My folder with Sublimetext have now 650mb size. There is a two big folders “Backup” and “Cache”. Can I delete both folders or that “Cache” is for something good?
Or is better to make fresh install and install again all plugins and set keybindings, snippets etc?
What is better? Fresh install and set everything again, or clean this folder?



Backup is the folder which Package Control copies old versions of packages to before installing new ones. The cache contains compiled syntaxes etc.

It’s safe to delete both of them. The next startup might take a little longer then, since ST needs to rebuild the cache, but the following startups are quick again.
