Atom leaves around 300 megs of crap, in user folder, after uninstalling


#1

After uninstalling Atom, I am left with a ton of crap in .atom. The reason I am uninstalling is to start with a fresh re-install. There should be an option / notification about the leftover baggage. Are there any other traces laying around that I should delete, as well?

If you want to start fresh, see the Atom Flight Manual Debugging section on resetting to factory defaults:

There are some things that support auto-updates, but nothing to do with Atom’s configuration itself, no.
