IDEA cache and abandoned projects

IDEA does not have an explicit function to delete a project. So I have to delete an existing project manually from the file system to get rid of it.
How does IDEA manage to remove the information of the deleted project from it's cache? Somehow I feel that this information is not deleted.

Hello Helge,

You're correct; the information is not deleted. The only way to delete old
information is to rebuild the caches completely.

Thanks for the clarification!

Would it be difficult to implement such a "delete project" function?
