When you import a local package for offline installation, the QNX Software Center stores the imported data in the offline package repository, which consists of the $HOME/.qnx/swupdate/dropins and $HOME/.qnx/swupdate/dropins-repo directories. You may need to delete the contents of these directories on occasion, either to free up space on your hard drive or to improve the performance of the QNX Software Center. (The QNX Software Center scans these directories when it launches, so its startup performance may degrade if the directories contain many packages.)

You can also free up disk space by clearing the package cache. For more information, see the discussion of the package cache location in the Edit installation properties section of this guide. Note, however, that clearing the package cache can reduce QNX Software Center performance.
