Windows 10 x64Version 10.0.19043 Build 19043 What is the purpose of this folder? I can't think of anything that I use MS SQL for (likely some app i installed years ago...)I don't proactively use MS SQL / SQLExpress for any development projects, so I don't think I'd be missing this if it has to go. 12GB of data seems like a lot of unnecessary used space.
