Desklickr sucking space
Last week I downloaded desklickr and started using it on my BlackBook. I ran it for a few days having it update every five minutes and was over pretty pleased with it.
Recently while I was searching in vain for some thing to delete so I could free up a little space on my all too small drive. I was using Disk Inventory X and eventually I stumbled across what appeared to be a cache for desklickr. I found nearly a gig of image files store there.
I don’t know why the app would need to cache image files, or at least more than say the last one or so. I was going to write that I didn’t see any options to clear the cache in the application and I was wrong. I just double checked the preferences and on the Advanced tab there is a File Cache: Clear It option.
So, that said… if you’re looking to clear up a little space have a go at clearing your Desklickr cache. It’s amazing how much builds up when you’re updating your desktop every five minutes for a week or two. But Desklickr is definatly cool for keeping my desktop fresh and interesting. I suggest downloading it from their site and giving it a try.
