~/.IntelliJIdea60 and ~/.IntelliJIdea70

Hi,

I've been analyzing disk usage and cleaning up old files on my system, and noticed these two directories in my home directory (this is a Linux installation of IDEA):

~/.IntelliJIdea60
~/.IntelliJIdea70

The former is occupying ~350 MB, the latter ~620 MB (I believe the size disparity reflects the addition of a Grails project and / or JetGroovy after upgrading to 7.0 EA).

My question is this: While I'm unlikely to want to revert to 6.0, would I be "burning my bridges" to remove ~/.IntelliJIdea60?

If you wanna be on the safe side only delete the systems folder.
It's contents will be rebuilt automatically (and it should be the
largest by far).

However if you delete .IntelliJIdea60 completely all you will lose are
IDE settings (error profiles, colors & fonts, ...)
As long as you keep your 6.0 project files, you can always revert.

342M .IntelliJIdea60/system


From system I tend to routinely delete ./caches and ./jars which is
where you'll find most of that 342mb being used.

There safe to delete.
