Windows 7: What is "searches" file

What is "searches" file

Running Windows 7 Home Premier

Under my user there is a file folder called searches. It seems to contain everything I have looked at in the past.

Can I delete it?
Will it come back?

It must take up lots of space on the hard drive.

Thanks in advance

Yes, you can delete the files in the folder. It helps speed up the searching process, but you are welcome to delete the files, although they are generally very small.
