I recently made a small app that I had issues with. I'm pretty sure it ended up being because of all the curated data to load. My problem now is that under the Windows 8.1 folder Users/Username/AppData/Roaming/Mathematica/Paclets/Temporary, there is 10GB of "GraphData" files. I have a small SSD and I need to get rid of this stuff. Now I'm assuming I can probably delete it, but I thought I'd ask if there's a proper way to delete this stuff (like a certain command or something). And finally, is there a way of preventing Mathematica from downloading so much data onto my computer, or at least deleting it once I'm done with it? That one day I loaded up my app, I lost 10 GB over the course of a couple hours.
The real question here is: why does Mathematica generate a rather large folder of data from the use of one notebook, and not clear it somehow afterwards? Is there a way of configuring how much temporary curated data is stored on your computer? Is there a way of clearing it without actually deleting the contents of the folder?
