does anyone know what this location in windows is used for or what it is?

Hi,

Does anyone know what this location in windows is used for or what it is??

"AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\AppCache"

We are using local profiles which are deleted at logoff but this folder always remains in most of the users profiles. It doesn't seem to cause any major issues I just want to get it resolved

AppCache folder is used by web-based applications that utilize Windows AppCache API (IE10 and above and Windows 8 store apps written in HTML5/JavaScript) - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ie/hh673545(v=vs.85).aspx

Basically, web applications can store data in the AppCache data to improve performance of their apps and allow for offline data access. Microsoft and third party apps utilize the AppCache feature.

For an understanding of how it actually works, you can see this blog post - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ie/archive/2011/09/27/building-offline-experiences-with-html5-appcache-and-indexeddb.aspx
