How to remove my caches and/or preferences folders in Football Manager?

PC

Sometimes we'll request you remove your cache/preferences folders as it may be the cause of an issue. We'd recommend moving these files away from their current location and into a 'new' folder you can create on your desktop. That way if this does fix the issue, you can hopefully send us folders so we can fix whatever caused the issue initially.

Make sure the game is not open before following the instructions below.

Windows 10 and 11:

- Click ‘File Explorer’ from within the taskbar (or click ‘Desktop/Start’ then type in ‘File Explorer’) 
- On the header click ‘View’ and make sure above ‘Show/hide’ that ‘Hidden Items’ is ticked 
- Navigate to C:\Users\[Your Windows Username]\AppData\Local\Sports Interactive\[Football Manager title] 
- Move the Preferences and/or Cache folder to your desktop, so they no longer appear in the Football Manager folder

Please bear in mind, these are not your save games or the same folder which contains these, this folder is completely unrelated. Upon removing these folders, new ones will be regenerated when you launch the game. The next time you launch the game remember to change any preferences you wish to have changed (such as auto saves, sound level or game display mode).
