No the default cache won't clear, if the OP changes his location. The
whole idea was to see whether that was helping to cause his large disk

to be cleared by navigating to that folder and deleting everything by hand.

That *.slt should be the folder which contains your profile, where the
mail and bookmarks, etc., are kept. On a default install, it's also
where the cache folder is for the browser page downloads (images,
scripts, etc.) You've most likely got a large collection of emails
and/or web page cache info.

TIA for your assistance...
If you've thrown emails out, they've been marked as 'gone' so you don't
see them in the GUI any longer, but the original raw text may still be
in the files where mail is stored. Open your mail window, right-click
on each folder listed and select 'Compact this folder'. If there're any
lingering, hidden message texts, that should clear them out, one folder
at a time.
To clear the cache (assuming no plugins): from either mail or browser
windows, go to Edit - Preferences - Advanced and you'll see the 'Cache'
item. Set max size, location, etc., and do a manual flush with 'Clear
Cache'. After all that, see how much space you've recovered from your
If you change the location of the cache directory, then clear the cache,
will that clear the cached files at the original location?
Perhaps the OP should clear the cache first, then select a better location
(if a better location is in fact desired)?
