Wondering what the differences, if any, are between wiping the cache partition in the reboot menu and just clearing out temporary files with the device care feature might be?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Wiping the cache partition is clearing the used RAM in the system. The frees up the system overall, but apps running in the background need to start from scratch (refresh). Clearing temporary files closes or deletes those files from memory. It goes a bit deeper than clearing the cache partition .
It does not format your phone....... You have to go to general management to reset your phone to factory
I know what a factory data reset is.
I'm asking what the differences between "clear cache partition" in the reboot menu and just cleaning your device with the device care feature are.
Neither of these have anything to do with factory data resetting your phone.
Always remember to clear your caches once a month if you are an individual who goes on the internet and plays a lot so it doesn't slow down your phone. Piece of thought! Good luck!
Once you are in your clear browsing, select advance and clear cache history from the beginning or whatever timeframes. If you don't want your saved username and password to remain don't check the box. You can keep your passwords stored. The rest of the cookies can be cleared without going back to the factory default. Select the three dots to the upper right of Chrome; go to privacy and clear cache/cookies. I do this regularly. I hope this helps.
Okay, I've known how to clear the browser history and cache since the dawn of the internet.
Another one missing the whole question here.
Clearing the cache partition and temporary files through device care deal with a lot more than just the internet.
You're talking about just the INTERNET BROWSER cache and history.
I'm talking about the PHONE SYSTEM CACHE, that you can clear with the PHONE'S REBOOT MENU.
And what is the difference between that and clearing out temporary files with the DEVICE CARE FEATURE.
