packages_v2.json = 25+ GB

Hello, JetBrains community,

How big is packages_v2.json supposed to be? Mine is currently 25GB and I would like to shrink it.

How can I do that?


Hi prisoneer , on which version does it happen? There was a known issue PY-57156, which should be fixed in latest 2023.3. You can remove the file and update to the latest version.


Hey, Mikhail,

I deleted the file and upgraded to 2023.3

For now, everything looks fine. I will report if something crazy happens.

Thank you and have a great day ahead.
