PyCharm 2024.1 Help

Cleaning system cache

PyCharm caches a great number of files, therefore the system cache may become overloaded. Sometimes the caches will never be needed again, for example, if you work with frequent short-term projects. Also, the only way to solve some conflicts is to clean out the cache.

  1. In the main menu, go to File | Invalidate Caches/Restart.

  2. In the Invalidate Caches dialog, select the relevant action. You can invalidate the caches and restart the IDE or just restart the IDE.

For more information about various user-specific files, refer to Directories used by the IDE.
