Selecting the Remove Tool creates LARGE cache folder

Photoshop v25.6
macOS Sonoma 14.4


When the Remove Tool is selected as the active tool a new cache folder is created here...

~user/Library/Caches/com.adobe.Photoshop/com.apple.e5rt.e5bundlecache

Every time the Remove Tool is selected as the active tool an additional 555 Mb gets added to this cache folder - every time the tool is selected. This new cache folder does not get cleaned up when Photoshop exits or if the computer is restarted. This cache folder is not affected by the Edit > Purge All command. Also, if the Remove Tool was the last tool used when Photoshop was closed, it will be the active tool next time Photoshop starts, which puts an additional 555 Mb into that cache folder. The above behavior occurs without having an image document open. This new cache folder quickly gets very large and never gets auto cleaned up. The behavior has been duplicated on three different Macs.

Deleting the folder has no effect as the folder gets created again the next time the Remove Tool is selected as the active tool.

What can be done? The folder quickly can grow in size to over 20+ GB in just one day. Thanks in advance.

It seems having Photoshop 2024>Settings >Image Processing>Remove Tool Processing set to More Stable produces those huge cache files.

 

Changing the setting to Faster produces substantially smaller cache files.

Thanks for the reply Jeff, that is good to know. I wish Photoshop would clean up (delete) after itself rather than leave them on the hard drive forever.
