So I have a question about the cache folder for vortex. So It has a lot of mods in there that were uninstalled by me in the past which is confusing me beyond no end. And the text file located in each says false. Can the cache folder be emptied or not because it's uses up a bit to much space.

What "cache folder" are you talking about? Sounds like you've been poking around in some of Vortex's internal files or something?

It's located in documents like this C:\Users\Kraigisboss\Documents\cache and the mods in there are one's I've uninstalled in the past. The cacheinfo.txt has this for the mods [email protected]@Data\@@[email protected]@- I'm not sure what it means

I don't have any cache folder in C:\users\NAME\Documents\

 

Just searched my entire C:\ there's no cacheinfo.txt on it.

OK, just did a quick google search that brought me back to the Nexus, there's a thread where someone is talking about cacheinfo.txt using the same notation as you with the @@@[email protected]@ etc.

That file and/or folder is from NMM (Nexus Mod Manager), not Vortex.  Vortex and Nexus Mod Manger are two DIFFERENT things

Which Mod Manager are you actually using?

I'm using vortex I didn't know that NMM would leave the old profile cache when I switched over to vortex and uninstalled NMM. I'm guessing it's safe then to remove now.

OK.
Uninstalling NMM should've removed that stuff, just another reason why I switched to Vortex.
