Bearing in mind, of course, that there are regular updates to almost everything so what I do is just leave the cache and whenever I feel the need to format (an old M$ habit) I back it up and restore it. That way what needs to be downloaded when I update is downloaded but what I've got cached that can be used is not. Of course my file storage habits mean that every now and then I completely lose that stuff and this allows me to not keep old outdated packages... It all works wonderfully. :D
Happy new year all.
