I unfortunately have to look for opportunities to recover space on my laptop drive. I noticed that I have some particularly large files in "workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.m2e.core/nexus". By large I mean several gigabytes. They are in files like "_15u.fdt" in directories with names like GUIDs. I notice that the last modified timestamp on several of these directories are from a few months ago.

I figured that this data has to do with the indexing level of my Maven repositories. I noticed that I had "central" set to "full index". I changed that to "disabled" for now, but I imagine even if that was the cause of those large files, changing that flag likely won't reclaim any space just by itself.

What can I do to clean up these directories safely?

I guess this isn't the best place to ask this. I've posted this to the m2e-users list.
