Description Forza 2020-01-26 11:38:43 UTC
tor uses /var/lib/tor to store both persistent data such as fingerprint and stats, as well as cache-type data. (diff-cache, cache-* files).

It would be appropriate to move the cache data to /var/cache instead.

#/etc/tor/torrc:
DataDirectory /var/lib/tor/data
CacheDirectory /var/cache/tor


There is also a tor bug tracker issue, that lead to the CacheDirectory config option:  https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/22703
