content.outlook folder

At work we run an RDS environment and the main C drive was running low on space.

I used Space Sniffer to see what I could free up and I noticed that each user profile had a folder called content.outlook within Temporary Internet Files.

What is content.outlook? It's basically a folder where Outlook temporarily stores attachments that are opened within it.

Every time an attachment is opened, a randomly generated folder name is created and the attachments dumped in there. It's just temporary working space, nothing more. The attachments still exist inside Outlook in your Exchange mailbox.

No index is kept so it is safe to just delete everything inside content.outlook and free up some valuable space!
