I am running R2019a on Linux and have noticed that there is a .matlab folder in my home directory. It is taking up 1.7G of data and I am only allowed 2.0G in my home folder. It seems it might have some settings related files and maybe some Cache files. See the directory listing below.
Is it safe to delete this directory? If I can't delete it without affecting functionality or performance, can I move the location of it? Given that this location is at max capacity, could this be effecting the performance of my MATLAB sessions?

I am having exactly the same problem with a .matlab directory that's bloated to 1.3GB on my home directory that's limited to a quota of 2GB. Is there a way to either clean this up periodically or tell Matlab to put this directory at an alternative location where I have more disk space?
Thank you.

Judging by its contents, the folder is where MATLAB stores preference files:
As long as you don't mind losing all of your history, layout, etc., then you can delete this folder and MATLAB will recreate it (most likely smaller). You might find this useful:
