I am using sketchup with maxwell along with the standalone studio. I have noticed my hard drive is becoming full. After further investigation i found a maxwell folder under my user directory. Currently it weighs 2.5 GB . I see a folder called sketchup and it is filled with textures thumbs previews etc is it ok to delete this ? Also another folder called output. What can i remove ? Is this supposed to happen ?

It will not hurt the plugin if you delete the temp folder, it is just the place where the plugin tells SketchUp to write textures, when you render textures which are embedded inside of .skp files. The output folder is where MXS files are written when you have specified no location, so you may have files in there that you want to keep.

Thanks JD for the prompt reply i found a neat app to hunt down storage usage called daisy disk (osx) it's pretty neat.
