    There's more than one cache in macOS, which one are you referring to?

    Yes, I read that in your original post. There are quite a few cache locations in macOS. For example, there are the main caches: ~/Library/Caches and the /System/Library/Caches. There are others, however.

    So, can you be more specific? What is it you hope to achieve by deleting a cache?

    Free OnyX software is much more reputable than clean my mac. It cleans bunch of various caches, you'll find the options under "Cleaning" tab in the software.

    Maybe it's one of the things you shouldn't really be touching if you need to ask those questions.
