Does clearing the system cache off my Galaxy A21 delete data on the device or does it only remove unnecessary files? Also, is it a good idea to clear the system's cache or not? My device has been consistently freezing,  glitching, lagging, and being unresponsive since the beginning of THIS year! So, if this resolves the ongoing issue, I would highly appreciate any responses.

Clearing either app cache or partition cache clear will not delete your data like a factory reset would. I clear the partition cache after every OS and security update to mitigate any software bugs they may bring. A weekly phone reboot is also helpful.

Thank you so much for providing this information! I will be looking more into a partition cache clear. I will reboot my device more often, as well 👍
