Is it safe to delete appdata folder on Windows 11?

Copper Contributor

My C drive is running out of space and I found the app data folder takes up more 60GB space. Can I safely delete the whole folder?

Deleting appdata folder is not recommended as it may break some apps/features. Use Storage sense to remove unwanted files and claim disk space.

Deleting the AppData folder can result in the loss of application settings, such as custom configurations, preferences, and saved data.

Why is the folder 39GB? What is Windows storing in this? There should be some way, some files which can be removed. And my storage sense is already on and there are not many files in temp also.
