After using Kodi for awhile it can become filled up with old add-ons, data, and other bits and pieces of code that are no longer needed.
Clearing out all the old data and having a fresh start can be a good thing, especially if errors start to happen.
Uninstalling Kodi often doesn’t delete all user data and needs to be cleared out with a utility.
Using a utility all the old data can be removed from Kodi.
Keep in mind when this is done all the addons, sources, and any Build will be gone and need to be added back in.
Doing a Fresh Start is usually needed when a new Build is installed as old data can mess up a Build from installing correctly.
There is a number of ways to do this with Ares Wizard being the easiest and most complete way to get rid of everything and start over.
Below are the steps to install Ares Wizard and use it to get a Fresh Start with Kodi.
