MSOCache Folder

Recommended Posts

I recently saw an MSOCache folder (Microsoft Office Cache), in my C: drive, and I was wondering whether I should delete it or not. The folder is pretty big, almost 1 gb. I'm an Office 2010 Beta user too. I haven't noticed this folder until today, and I haven't noticed it in my Disk Cleanup yet either, so I'll have a look there soon. Here's a picture of the folder: d2baec6f54b8.png

If you delete it this is what will happen:

* MS Office's repair function won't work from the hard disk cache anymore - will require the CD's to fix it.

* Microsoft Updates for Office that require the cache won't work from the hard disk cache anymore - will require the CD's to install them.

 

Solution, what I did recently:

1. Burn that whole folder to a CD-R or DVD (the filesize of that folder depends upon your Office version).

2. Delete that folder.

3. Search the registry in RegEdit for C:\MSOCache and change all references to point to your CD/DVD drive, example:

E:\MSOCache (will of course require the disc when something Office related needs those cache files.)
