The Adobe XD program size seems to be 2.73 GB on my computer saved under local disk C. I see that the application only sized 400 MG whereas the data is more than 2 GB. I use creative cloud and work with files on the cloud. I do not understand why Adobe XD data size is that large now and cannot see if it actually downloads the files I am working with locally. Is there any way to change this so that the size remains only as the application size. I only want to work through the cloud.
Hey there! All of Adobe's apps, including Xd, will have to create some sort of cache on your machine in order to work. Even if you are not saving to your machine, the program has to keep some of the stuff you are working with locally.
Xd does have a bit of an issue with managing cache, although I would say 2-3 GB is not too bad. Other users (me included) have 10 or more GB of cache on our machines.
I've discussed a way of cleaning it, without resetting your program (which will remove it, but also remove plugins and settings), in this thread. I'm not sure it's worth the hassle, as it's just under 3GB for now, which isn't too much. Maybe if it gets to 10-12, you can clean it. It's mostly thumbnails and exports that are saved and not cleared after (for some reason). Your actual files are still on the cloud.
