Can You Delete the Windows System 32 CCM Cache?

Cache files are temporary files a computer uses while it is either installing a program or connected to a website. When maintenance is done on computers, part of that is deleting the cache files to clean out stored information that may cause operational conflicts.

Cache files are temporary files that can be deleted when they are no longer needed.


The Microsoft Windows System 32 center configuration manager (CCM) cache provides temporary storage space for the installer file of programs. When a program is executed, it requires a place to extract the installer files to successfully install a program.


The benefits of having a storage place for programs installer files is that if something interrupts the installation of a program, you can re-run the installation without downloading the files again.


Once a program is installed, you can safely delete any cache files left from the program installation. Most companies recommend leaving any cache files from an installation for at least a few days in case there is something you wish to modify about the installation.
