Clearing the data folder

Before deleting anything, please note:
If you have linked your App to Robocorp Cloud, you should remove the corresponding Environment from your Robocorp Cloud workspace. Link data is unique to your installation and cannot be re-created, so the Cloud's corresponding Runtime Environment becomes obsolete.

Robocorp App stores data files under a common folder according to OS conventions. The folder holds the cache for running environments, logs, and the data that links your App to Robocorp Cloud.

  • On Windows, find this in: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\robocorp\
    • Copy & paste to File Explorer address bar.
  • On macOS and Linux in: ~/.robocorp/
    • On macOS: Go -> Go to Folder -> write ~/.robocorp/.
    • On Linux... just go there ;)

One more choice before clearing:

  • If you are NOT using Robocorp Lab and just want to clean everything:
    --> You can delete the whole robocorp folder

  • If you ARE using Robocorp Lab and want to keep using it:
    --> You should only delete the robocloud-worker folder
