    Hi everyone,
    I just realised Buildbox 3 has a folder under Library/Preferences/ which is celld com.eightcell.buildbox3. And that like takes in my case 12.05 GB of disk space of my Macbook Air. I wonder how much of it could we delete? Like if I am using the latest version of BB3 then canI delete the older ones. Cause I see I have some files even goes back to 2018 there.

    Would appreciate your input. Thank you

    @volcank If you are using latest version of Buildbox then deleting the modules of the prior versions is perfectly safe.Those folders do have bassets too delete it if your aren't using it either. But I think the asset might automatically download since it receives directly from the server.

    every time you install buildbox, it will generate new modules folder with maybe 0.5GB space,
    just remove all old modules and don't worry, it's safe

    Open Finder and click go -> go to folder and paste this ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/
    you will see two folders one com.eightcell.xxx and another folder eightcell
    also on going to ~/Library/Preferences/ you will see com.eightcell.xxx folder too...hope this helps
