Can I delete .local wandb-related files?

Hi Artsiom and team,
my home drive on the cluster has hard limit on usage (50gb). I’m currently over the limit and I can see that .local has a lot of wandb files in there. Is it safe to remove?

Hi @patocal! I’ll be more than happy to help :slight_smile:

** By the way, I tested it out and it seems to work fine.

Could you please point me to the .local folder you are talking about (I found a couple of them on my computer, without wandb files). Is this the one that is in your root directory?

Sounds like you deleted your folder, very brave of you :slight_smile:
It honestly should be fine, the .local directory often contains various user-specific data, including the files used by W&B for logging and syncing runs. The .wandb files within this directory are used to store metadata and logs for your experiments. And would be used to sync your runs if you ran them in the offline mode.

Hi @patocal! Wanted to follow up with your regarding this thread!

Hi @artsiom, the .local directory I’m referring to is in my home directory on the cluster. I can’t give you any more details at the moment as I’m away on holiday and access to the cluster is not that easy.

No worries at all. Happy holidays and looking forward to hearing from you.

Hey @patocal! any updates on your side?
