user\Application Data\CryoCache folder has a huge build up of files and it is not clear what is generatiring them and if they are nescessary. It may be Outlook or Exchange.

It is killing my hard drive.

foolslogic, not sure we're thinking of the same critter. Sounds sorta like Outlook is keeping a log, see if there's an option not to keep one? You can clear '.temp' files, maybe that'll redo it for you? Another thing you might try is to clear a file called 'index.dat'. It gets read every time and can take quite a while if it’s too bloated. It's like a log file and keeps a record of every site you visit on the web. Empty, it's 32K, but it can grow HUGE. It's a protected file and can't be deleted by normal methods. CCleaner (free @: http://www.ccleaner.com/) can get rid of it when it’s ticked (not to worry, it gets rebuilt EMPTY on the next boot.). May not be your deal at all, but won’t cause any harm to try. I run it often (daily as I mess with LOTS of DLs).
