Thanks for the report! How big are we talking about? How many folders are there in the addresses folder? It might simply be a fail-to-clean bug, if that is so I might be able to just roll a fix into the next version.

i’ve deleted the dir yesterday because my pc has crashing. i sent you via MEGA the directory as it is today via MP (i couldn’t see what it contained becaose the file explorer continue to load without an end)

Thank you! I’ll take a look and figure out why it’s happening.

Edit: I took a look — do you see the other types of caches having this problem, are they normally sized?

I checked my own caches and far as I can see this doesn’t happen on Mac, it also looks like a bug I’ve fixed a while ago, so this is likely Windows specific. If it’s not happening with other caches, I might be able to look at what I did to fix the other caches and re-apply it to addresses.

I Checked the others caches and seems ok. The Aether on the debian VPS also seems ok .For me this is a Windows specific bug similar to the one you have already fixed
