Substance 3D Painter - High Cache Disk Usage

I noticed today that Painter uses a lot more disk space than it used to. Usually it's around 50 %, but now it's 70% even when it's opened on an empty project. I updated to the newest version and no change. I cleaned up temp files, too. 

Why is it using so much when there's nothing even loaded yet?

Hi

See this answer given by (then Substance) staff: https://forum.substance3d.com/index.php?topic=27720.0

 

The % is not showing the used space by Substance Painter in the allowed cache but is showing the overall used space on the disk which you have chosen for cache. Therefore the increase is due to storage of other files/applications on the same disk
