How can I optimize server storage usage in IntelliJ IDEA?


Hello Everyone,

I hope you're all doing well. I'm currently facing a challenge with server storage usage in IntelliJ IDEA and I'm seeking some advice on how to optimize it.

Here's a bit of context: I've been using IntelliJ IDEA for a while now and have noticed that it's consuming a significant amount of server storage space. As my projects are growing in size, this issue is becoming more pronounced, and I'm concerned about running out of storage capacity.

I've tried some basic approaches like clearing caches and temporary files, but I feel there might be more effective strategies out there that I'm not aware of.

If you have experience dealing with similar issues or know of any tips, tricks, or best practices for optimizing server storage usage in IntelliJ IDEA, I would greatly appreciate your insights. Whether it's configuring settings, utilizing specific plugins, or implementing certain workflows, any advice would be valuable.

Additionally, if there are any tools or plugins specifically designed for managing server storage usage in IntelliJ IDEA, I would love to hear about them.

Thank you in advance for your help and suggestions. Your expertise will be immensely helpful in improving my development environment and workflow.

Looking forward to hearing from you all.

Could you please check what folders take the most space? There might be different cases - from old caches (that could be removed) to permanently spamming logs (it should be investigated and fixed). So, information about biggest folders is needed.
