What does Miscellaneous Caches remove?

Recommended Posts

When I ran CCleaner (1.00.077 Beta) on my Mac today, I became curious about the following "Caches" under the Miscellaneous category, which found about 3.5GB of data:

 

Miscellaneous

Caches 3,558,961 KB 10,908 files

 

What files are these?

 

Thanks!

Hi Guys

 

That rule handles files from these folders:

~/Library/Caches

/Library/Caches

/private/var/folders/.../-Caches-/

So is it Safe to leave the miscellaneous caches box ticked?
