Pipeline cache grows in size

Copper Contributor


I have a Java-Maven build pipeline where I use pipeline caching to restore dependencies.

I see after like a month of pipeline usage the cache grows in size. Initially the size is around 1GB but later it crosses 12GB, what I'm concerned is if even if there is a cache miss, dependencies should get overridden , but this is getting appended. As a workaround I'm currently changing the cache key name to version2, version3 etc., so cache will be refreshed. Any insights would be appreciated. TIA

Thanks for response, but this doesn't help though.
