Hey guys,

Anyone have any idea what this "Experimentation" folder is in the cache (/Library/Caches/Adobe/Experimentation)? It's taking up almost 500MB and contains 3 folders: ILST_23.0_LEARN, ILST_23.1_LEARN, ILST_LEARN24.0

 

I don't ever remeber doing a project called that and can't find anything else on my computer with it.

 

Thanks!

I was just looking for info on this folder as well.  It's using nearly 1 GB of space in my Windows profile.

My folder has flown. It has accumulated 10 GB.

I deleted it and then rebuilds it automatically. But I don't think it will be this size.

In Bridge, Other library previews etc. there is.

Yeah, it looks like they're the in-app tutorials you can access from the "Learn" tab when you open up illustrator. I just deleted them but wouldn't be surprised if they showed up again 🙄🙄

Yeah, this is infurating, Adobe downloading 1GB of stuff I will never use.

When I travel, I don't dare tether my laptop to my phone for fear that Adobe will download MB of data.

I really wish this bloatware could be controlled by the user. I never use Learn or Stock or anything like this.

 Basically means I can't use my laptop on the road unless it's guaranteed free WiFi. Adobe assumes there's fast free wifi everywhere and that my hard drive is infinite.  These comments have been in the Support Community for years.
