Why would you or wouldn’t you do this? — Bruce Comments: One Response to “Why delete kernel cache?” Gary Rosenzweig 8/19/10 @ 12:11 am Are you having problems? If not, then there is no reason to clear your kernel cache. The only reason I know of to do so would be if you Mac is experiencing some problems then clearing the kernel cache would be one of many things that a fix-it guy would try. In all my years of using Macs I have never had to do this. Comments Closed.
