Adobe‘s installers and updaters for the Creative Suite are amazingly bad. The updaters actually create a hidden directory
/Applications/.AdobePatchFiles and store what I assume are the old versions of the files that get updated. Almost a gigabyte of data on my system!
What the fuck is wrong with these guys?
Not certain which is worse, that the updaters created a folder in
/Applications that clearly belongs somewhere in
/Library/Application Support (if it should exist at all) or that they made it hidden.
You can delete it.
