Lightroom CC is eating disk space

Hi,

 

I've migrated my Lightroom Classic into Lightroom CC. So far so good. 🙂

I'm struggling with my available disk space since my migration and today, I've identfied, that LRCC is consuming 100g of my 220g SSD.

The data is stored within APPDATA and - by far - the biggest subfolder is "proxies".

It seems that these data is consumed by smart previews. The local copy option for Smart Previews was enabled. After disabling the feature, the space has not released yet.

 

Is it safe to delete the "proxies" folder? I really need more available disk-space. 🙂

 

 

Thanks.

 

Happy easter and stay healthy.
