1.12 GB Storage

#1

F-Droid app + 665 MB User date + 435 MB Cache.
If I understand correctly, a lot of that is actually my downloaded apps’ apk’s.(?) If I clear everything I will have to set up my F-Droid settings again. It doesn’t take long to do that but if I want to keep those apks can I simply find them on my phone and transfer them to the SD card?
Thanks.

Just clear cache, you won’t have to setup anything after, also set a smaller retention period in Settings if you don’t want it to bloat.

Thanks. Clear the cache portion. Done. In app settings not touched. Great. So the storage (User data portionof 665MB) contains the settings, list of repositories, apks? What was in cache? Thank you for your knowledge.

#4

The index, screenshots and icons part, I guess.

Do you have many repos?

#5

I have even more in data > 1,1G. The downloaded files should stay only for one day (at least that’s what it says in the settings). So what’s in it?

#6

Repos: F-Droid, Guardian Project, and IzzyOnDroid.
The mystery (to me) is what contributes to the size?

I guess, as you said, icons index screenshots, are probably a lot of bytes.
