blob_storage folder

Copper Contributor

What does the blob_storage folder cointain?

It's very large (about 4Gb), and so I would exclude it from the daily backup of my user profile.

Can I do it (exclude blob_storage folder) without jeopardize a possible restore of my user profile data?

Thank you.

Can anybody help?



It's tough nut to crack. My folders are empty! I got two GNU/Edge with other profiles.




I've tried to find a clue using search forces but it's pointless. Or the two sources are shedding some light into the issue.
