## HUGE folder of stuff in my roaming profile!

by jjasmith4 :: Rate this Message:

| View Threaded | Show Only this Message

I have SmartCVS 7.1.4.  I was recently trying to find out why my roaming profile is TWELVE meg, when other developers' profiles average about only half a meg.

I look at the Properties of my %UserProfile%\.smartcvs\fmicache\ folder: it has 5,853 files of total size 13.2 meg.  But since they're distributed among 689 folders, the size on disk is 31.7 meg!  That's because all the files are only a couple of lines of text taking far less than even 1K, the folder structure goes more than 10 levels deep, and most folders hold only one such tiny file.

Come on guys, isn't there a more efficient way to hold all this information?  How about a way to reduce it or delete it?

Hm, this should be the (settings) directoy of a quiet old SmartCVS version. Newer ones should use %APPDATA%\syntevo\SmartCVS\7.1\metacache.

So I can DELETE %UserProfile%\.smartcvs\fmicache\?  The whole THING!?

What about %UserProfile%\.smartcvs\7.1?  I notice in folder jna-tmp there's a big file jna29189.tmp, 324K, and accessed only recently.

It looks like you are using an SmartCVS build which I release by error with Java 1.4. Please download and install the latest version from

http://www.syntevo.com/smartcvs/download.html

which will include Java 1.6.

This will use the mentioned %APPDATA% directory for the settings.

I'm trying to clean up my huge profile.  So can I delete all the files and folder I mentioned, %UserProfile%\.smartcvs\fmicache\ and %UserProfile%\.smartcvs\7.1?  With no adverse effects?

Great!   What about %UserProfile%\.smartcvs\7.1? I notice in folder jna-tmp there's a big file jna29189.tmp, 324K, and accessed only recently.  Can that be reduced if not deleted?

Are you now using the latest SmartCVS build? Then this directory should not be used anymore.

Do you consider 324k HUGE? It is a temporary folder and could be deleted if SmartCVS is not running.

## Re: HUGE folder of stuff in my roaming profile!

Yes, I downloaded and installed 7.1.5 just last week.  So what about all of %APPDATA%\.smartcvs -- can I kill that off?

And yes, 324k is pretty big for a temp file, especially in a roaming profile, which therefore gets copied to every machine I use.  Why doesn't SmartCVS/Java delete that file when I close SmartCVS, and why doesn't it/it put the file in %TEMP%, which is local?

Because it can't until the VM is running.

To be able to clean it up at the next start.

## Re: HUGE folder of stuff in my roaming profile!

I don't get it.  Just about every other application I've heard of makes temp files which are in fact Temporary, that is, they're deleted as soon as they're no longer needed.

So you're that when SmartCVS starts, it deletes them, but then re-creates them immediately?  And then leave them behind when it ends?  That means that the window of time when those files don't exist is only a few fleeting moments!  That's an unconscionable form of childish procrastination -- they're just sitting there taking up space from everything else!  It's like a kid covering the living room floor with toys, then leaving them until the next day -- you can't walk around the living room for the whole day!

It should be the other way around -- the TEMP files should Exist only for a few fleeting moments, and SmartCVS should Clean Up Its Mess.  Can you imagine if Word, Excel, Access, etc., left behind all its temp files?  Seven versions, and you've never thought of this??

So to return to my original question, can I delete %APPDATA%\.smartcvs with no adverse effects?  Must I do that every time I exit SmartCVS?  Geez -- maybe I have to write a batch file...

Why don't you just give it a try but instead continue to blame SmartCVS? Yes, you should be able to delete %UserProfile%\.smartcvs if the SmartCVS version you are running uses %APPDATA%\syntevo\smartcvs.

## Re: HUGE folder of stuff in my roaming profile!

As I said before, I'm using 7.1.5.  Please confirm that 7.1.5 uses only the %APPDATA%\syntevo\smartcvs folder.

As for blame -- what else is leaving all those files lying around?  I'm really suggesting an enhancement to your product: clean up!  It's not exactly unprecedented...

Yes, if you haven't changed the smartcvs.home property, then SmartCVS 7.1.5 should use %APPDATA%\syntevo\smartcvs. Doesn't it work for you?
