Where are the ReSharper cache files kept?

Rider has to store both ReSharper and IntelliJ settings and cache files.


On Windows, the ReSharper host cache files are kept in the %LOCALAPPDATA%\JetBrains\Transient\ReSharperHost\v{version}\ folder.

The global settings are in %APPDATA%\JetBrains\ReSharperHost\v{version}\. The IntelliJ global settings are stored in %USERPROFILE%\.Rider10, and the per-project settings in the solution local .idea folder.


On OSX and Linux, Rider stores the ReSharper host persistent settings in ~/.config/JetBrains/, and ReSharper solution caches in ~/.local/share/JetBrains. The IntelliJ global settings are stored in ~/Library/Preferences/Rider10, and per-project settings in the solution local .idea folder.

 

HINT: {version} in a path depends on ReSharper version which is used in current Rider build. As of EAP 15 (December 2016), it is "07"

 As of 2018, on macOS the cache seems to be moved to ~/Library/Caches/Rider{version}.

I am finding that Rider puts reSharper caches in solution directory _Resharper... That actually is horrible because building docker with . generatest error on context check. The fact that it cannot access lock file. I don't know why docker checks all permissions upfront, but it does. I would really like to know how to remove caches from solution directory.
