What criteria do you use to determine that you "need to"? :smileyindifferent:

Re: How Often Do You Delete and Re-Install Home:

I renistalled after the most recent update because I noticed some issues with the loading screens. Turned out to be the first time I'd reinstalled since last December.

 

The old reason for reinstalling Home was that it cleared the cache. That can be done directly from the Options menu now, so there's no reason for regular delete/reinstall cycles. It does seem to speed things up a bit, though, and it cleared up an issue I was having with a game in a personal space.

When Home starts messing up, getting constant errors, freezing.

Surely no one is suggesting that you should.

 

Like I said earlier it comes down to ones personal preference.

 

I was just simply curious to other folks thoughts on this matter.:womanhappy:

don't get me wrong i don't see a problem in it but i just don't know the benefits of regular cache clearing in something like Home as opposed to say a web browsers cache or why someone would do it without first having problems that it may fix. i'm just curious as to the benefits of it more than anything. to me starting a sort of routine has to have benefits, something like opening my PS3 & taking water & a Q-tip to clean the blu-ray lens has tremendous benefits ( <--- pro tip if your PS3 is out of warranty & not playing discs try plain water & a Q-tip with extremely light pressure on the lens just enough to see the assembly move, alcohol will instantly destroy the plastic lens & lens cleaners do more harm than good on the extremely delicate blu-ray lens ) but you get my point.

 

if it has benefits i see a good self-maintenance routine, if not i don't understand the cause behind going through all that. so if you know of any real benefits i'd like to know more about it.
