burpbrowser folder disk usage issue

Robert | Last updated: Nov 17, 2020 02:02PM UTC

When burp pro is upgraded on Windows, the C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\BurpSuite\burpbrowser folder retains older versions of burp browser instead of removing them, resulting in increasing disk usage. Currently this folder is using 1.26gb space for me.

Thanks for getting in touch. Are you using the installed version of Burp Suite Professional or are you using the jar files to launch Burp?

I'm using the installer version

Thanks for the update. When I compare this against the settings on my Windows setup, I'm seeing details for the ConfigLibrary in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\BurpSuite, so my setup seems to be slightly different from yours. Would you be happy to email us (support@portswigger.net) with some more information so I can try and see if I can replicate what you're seeing? It would be good to know the following: - which versions have you upgraded from and to? - Do you only see the burpbrowser folders in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\BurpSuite? - What did you choose as the installation path?
