That's more Redmi's fault than Google's--the option to wipe all cached files simply shouldn't be surfaced. You'd normally have to go into each individual app's system settings screen to wipe its cache.So, why is it so easy to delete cache files on android phones? Was using the default file manager on my Redmi 5 plus and it has a file cleaner built in. I pressed it to see what is taking up so much space that's not needed, and apparently it also treats cache files as useless junk. And I accidentally wiped 3 gigs worth of app data in the process, leading to about 20 games progress disappearing. So again, why is it so easy to just delete such important data in a matter of seconds? And why doesn't google or at least the OEM offer cloud storage for cache backups?
