Bridge 2020 installed, 10 GB disk space lost. ?

I'm an Adobe app user for over 25 years. I'm new to Bridge and, being curious, just installed the latest version on my Mac. Opened Bridge 2020, and without changing any settings in Preferences I selected a folder with over 7000 images on my drive, and after a lengthy process, I now have 10GB less disk space.

Boom!

I don't really need Bridge in my workflow, so I deleted it again. But I still lost those 10GB disk space. Can somebody please point me to the right location where those thumbnail/preview files are so I can get rid of them?

Should find what you're looking for in the location specified in Preferences->Cache Management.

Thanks Bill. I have looked there. I also have noticed that in Preferences the 100% preview images was checked by default. I'm suspecting those preview images to be the culprit for the missing 10GB disk space.

As I had mentioned, I have since deleted all Bridge caches, uninstalled the bridge app and deleted all associate folders and files I could find that the uninstaller had left behind. 

Do you know where those 100% preview images are stored?
