Telegram storage of files just on idle

I was introduced to Telegram about a year ago. I haven’t used it much, butt my cousin’s son, who is a big mac user professionally in the movie business and as a professional audio engineer uses it a lot. I just noticed this folder:
/Users/XXXXXXX/Library/Group Containers/6N38VWS5BX.ru.keepcoder.Telegram/stable/account-8640009521150042066/postbox

Is growing by leaps and bounds with Telegram just sitting there.

This might shed some light on the matter: Delete media files from telegram on mac OS | by Panjeh | Medium

You might also want to check on just WHICH Telegram client you are using. This one seems to be the “official” desktop client https://desktop.telegram.org/. I believe the one you are using is different. This GitHub issue refers to that difference: Media cache is never cleared and become very big on MacOS · Issue #6345 · telegramdesktop/tdesktop · GitHub

Holy $h|t dsh1705. That GitHub article had a poster say:

 I realize now than depending where you go on the telegram website you have two different version:
   * https://telegram.org/dl/macos
   * https://telegram.org/dl/desktop/mac

like WTF? Two versions on their own site? And which is on the App store? They need to explain or get a spanking! 20 lashes with a wet noodle!

Thanks dsh1705!
