Purges folder on users mailbox (Exchange 2010)

stlhost used Ask the Experts™
I was running Get-MailboxFolderStatistics on a users mailbox and there is this folder called Purges. This does not show up in the users mailbox and Ive never seen it before on any other mailbox. What is this folder and how do we either view what is in there and delete it since it is taking up a lot of space.
