Default JDownloader installation is getting too big

I have installed JDownloader in a headless machine some time ago, but the installation folder is getting very big (>1gb and >150k files) and I don't have enough space there

Which files/folders are safe to delete? Logs folder? Inside cfg folder there are a lot of files too

If I export the settings in a .jd2backup file and restore it in a new installation, will it have all that "unnecessary" files?
How can I export/import the settings in a headless installation?

Default

you can delete logs
you can even set it to not log, changing advanced setting Log.maxlogfilesize with description of 'Max logfile size in bytes. Size <100Kbyte will disable logfiles'

The log folder had 45k files and 350mb, it lightened up but still there are a lot of files, most of them in the cfg folder.
Do you want a list of files there?

I would not advise you to delete your cfg directory unless you want to start out with a default JDownloader. You could loose your settings or your download/linkgrabber contents. The installation outside of that there is a tmp directory which on my install is only ~7MiB large, which is safe to delete. The content of captchas is safe to delete. The rest of JD installation I would not touch.
