A

Files stored in the "C:\Users\<userid>\AppData\Local" folder are files created by applications to store configuration settings, temporary files, and data specific to each application.

Files stored in this folder are "local" to this computer only. They will not be shared with other computers even your login account is a network account.

Files in this folder are organized into sub folders, one sub folder for each application. If you have an application that you are not use it any more, you should delete its sub folder.

For example, if you have uninstalled Snagit from TechSmith, you can remove the "C:\Users\<userid>\AppData\Local\TechSmith" folder.
