    Duplicate Files in C:Users\Owner directories ???


    This is for a Windows10 desktop running Office 365. The C: drive is a smaller SSD drive while the D: drive is a 1TB drive I use for all my file storage including D:Onedrive Pictures; Documents; Movies; Music; etc. I sync all my OneDrive data with the "cloud".



    I noticed that most of my files in D:Onedrive have been duplicated onto my C: SSD drive in C:User\Owner\ Pictures; Documents; etc. Because of the small size of this SSD drive I want to keep it as lean as possible.


    Why are files of all sorts duplicated here??? ...and what happens if I clear them out?


    Thanks!

    :)

  3. Are the files in the C:\drivertemp directory necessary?

    Are the files in the C:\drivertemp directory necessary? I ran duplicate file finder and there are many many duplicate files in the various C:\drivertemp directory subdirectories. I would like to know if I can safely delete these files.
