How To Delete The SCCM Client Cache Files

Sometimes you need to delete the SCCM Client cache if a software package you are trying to deploy gets corrupted. There are a couple of ways to delete the SCCM Client cache. Here’s how to delete the SCCM Client cache files using SCCM Client Center:

  1. Open SCCM Client Center
  2. Enter the SCCM Client computer name and connect to the client (top left hand corner of SCCM Client Center)
  3. Click Agent Actions
  4. Click the Cache tab
  5. Click the magnifying glass to find the cache path
  6. Click the magnifying glass to find the cache size
  7. Click Get List to list the files in the SCCM Client cache
  8. Right click each cache file and click Delete Pkg. from cache

Alternatively if you don’t want to use SCCM Client Center, you can simply navigate to the location of the SCCM Client cache (typically C:\WINDOWS\system32\CCM\Cache\) and manually delete the files… Do not delete all the files in the Cache directory, just the folders that contain the packages you think are corrupted and start with the SCCM site name 😉
