Uninstalling LucidLink client removes our application however there is still residual file index (metadata) and cache data utilized for each Filespace you have previously connected. 

In order to remove this data and clean up your drive, you can safely delete the data contained within the .lucid inside your user profile, or home folder dependent on your operating system. 

 

This article will guide you through removal. 

Note: If you have previously relocated your cache, the residual Filespace cache is contained in the path where it was moved.
Note: If you plan on reinstalling the Lucid client, please leave the .lucid folder in place and do not delete it.

Open Lucid.log via Terminal

rm -r ~/.lucid

 

Inside the .lucid folder you will find your log files, configuration files and individual sub-directories for each Filespace previously connected. 

Each Filespace has a unique identifier (UID) and will be represented as its own folder containing the metadata and cache data.

To identify your Filespace UID use the LucidLink client CLI:

lucid status

If you have disconnected from a Filespace, and have no intention of reconnecting, you may safely delete the appropriate Filespace UID folders from your .lucid
