  3. all cache folders


But I don't know any other ones can anybody tell me another file extension I could add in my search because I what to run find command while specifying all the file extensions so as to delete them

    There are no standard extensions for temporary files. It's up to apps how they save their files. Also every app's private storage isn't accessible to other apps without root access. So you have to clear cache from app settings. See Where Android apps store data? Apr 20, 2020 at 2:34
  • I have root access and I can search all locations but just don't know what to specify as temp file name so that I can erase all available temp files both for system files too Apr 20, 2020 at 2:38
