How to Clear the Cache in BlueStacks


BlueStacks is the most popular Android emulator available for both PC and Mac users. It effectively turns your computer into a virtual Android phone, allowing you to access games and programmes that are only available on Android devices. However, this type of emulation consumes a lot of data, and even after you’ve finished, the cache will continue to take up space on your computer.

Because of this, both main versions of BlueStacks — BlueStacks 5 on PC and BlueStacks 4 on Mac — allow users to quickly and simply clean up the excess information. The specific approach you employ will differ slightly, but both will assist you in freeing up storage space that BlueStacks does not require.

What is the storage of BlueStacks?

I believe that bluestacks presently offers a limit of 64 GB of storage capacity for the virtual sd image/internal storage on the computer. Android smartphones nowadays commonly accept SD cards up to a capacity of 512 GB. I have a collection of films, photos, and pdf documents totaling around 320 GB that I would want to keep on my Bluestacks instance.
