Can I remove the Docker cache on a Mac?

I am low on space and was looking into stuff I can delete, and this caught my attention:

/Users/me/Library/Caches/com.docker.docker/org.sparkle-project.Sparkle/PersistentDownloads/MZZKMjpQS/Docker\ 37199

It’s 2.66 GB big, and it contains: - 1.98 GB
Docker.dmg - 681.5 MB

Looks like a cache that was used to update Docker.

Would it be safe to delete it ? I would assume yes, but would rather be sure.
At over 2.5 GB in size, it could help make some room on my laptop.


I am on the latest MacOS, by the way, and the latest stable version of Docker.

The proper way to clear all the cache is with docker system purge.

This file is simply temporary installation file.
If Docker got a new version, it will automatically download it and wait for you to update.
Just initiate the update from Docker menu, this temp file will go away.
