    I have sent in a lot of feedback since PB1 using the feedback assistant. Now my Cache folder has about 11GB
    OS X Yosemite ▸ User ▸ username ▸ Library ▸ Caches ▸ 2014-08-19 um 22.24.04 Kopie 2.png

    Seems like only the Logfiles are collected there...

    What happens if i delete it? Can i still view the feedback that i sent in? I like to check the feedback after a new Release to see if they fixed it so i need to access the Feedback that i have given.

    If you look closely you'll see sysdiagnose*.tar.gz files in each feedback attachments directory, those are the snapshots taken and uploaded, that's probably the culprit. Only problem would be if Apple asks to upload it again but I really doubt that'll happen.

    I'd try moving them and see if the text content of the Feedback Assistant is still intact, then if all is well delete them.

    BTW you must have had a lot of feedback, I logged 17 and only have 432MB in that cache. I mean that's good, you know, make this a better release.
