My RoboHelp 2019 project includes a number of .rh cache files and folders.

Are these something I should just ignore?

I was using RH2015 before the upgrade, and the only cache I was aware of was the .cpd file.

It seems that now I every time I edit a file there's a cached version.

We use Subversion for version control, so when committing changes I have to carefully review the entire filellist and choose not to commit those cache files.

Hi Nick,

Files inside .rh folder need not be checked-in to version control.

Topics kept inside top-level-foldername/.rh/.nicks.fr.cache/contents have topic files whose text is saved here for find and replace feature. We find in these files for text search. 

Files like .username.db.json is for reading the project while opening. Project open is faster with this cache file. 

File .username.preferences.json contains detail related to recently opened files, generated outputs etc. 

So yes, recommendation is not to check-in these files to version control. We make a ignore list of these files for our out of the box version control sysytems like GIT, TFS etc.

Thanks and Regards,
Surbhi Maheshwari
