What Caches are?

From Wikipedia

In computing, a cache is a component that stores data so future requests for that data can be served faster; the data stored in a cache might be the result of an earlier computation, or the duplicate of data stored elsewhere. A cache hit occurs when the requested data can be found in a cache, while a cache miss occurs when it cannot. Cache hits are served by reading data from the cache, which is faster than recomputing a result or reading from a slower data store; thus, the more requests can be served from the cache, the faster the system performs. 

Simply, caches are temporary files that system and apps use to avoid recreating or re-downloading some information for their operating. It’s sounds not that bad, but over time caches become bigger and bigger and start slowing your Mac instead of making it work faster. Thus, periodically we have to delete them.

How to delete caches?

To delete caches remove all files and folders from the following locations:

Macintosh HD > Library > Caches

Macintosh HD > ~Library > Caches 

Second location is hidden, but you can use ⌘+⇧+G shortcut and copy it.

P.S. If you need not to remove the caches any application – then remove all the content, not the folder with its name.

Then reboot your Mac. The first boot will be longer than usual – this is normal. This is how you delete the cache files, most but not all of them.

There are a lot of caches stored in many locations to find all of them we recommend Clear Disk
