Your home drive contains profile data. /!\ Therefore, do not delete these folders "to make space" or "clean up a bit".

Local Temporary Data

On every Windows host, there is a folder called C:\Scratch (the equivalent folder on a Linux box would be /scratch). We recommend to use this folder for processing large amounts of computing data. This will also result in a performance boost because you will not read and write data via the network.

Please be aware that C:\Scratch is not secured by a backup. If the harddisc crashes, your data will be lost.
