This question came up from a coworker of mine who was working on a machine where the above folder was 20 GB’s in size. I had never heard of it and I didn’t have on myself which caused us to think spyware or virus right off the bat.

After further research we found that CSC stands for Client Side Caching, and those files are created when you enable the “Offline Files” setting in windows.
