No, do not delete it.

You haven't said what software you've got installed, but this link explains what the folder is for in terms of Microsoft Office 2007.

Basically, MSOcache holds installation files copied from the installation DVD during installation and repair operations. Strictly speaking, the folder should be hidden so if you don't want to see it you need to go into Folder Options and check "Do not show hidden files".

Well I must disagree. I always delete the MSOCache folder because, as previously stated, it only holds copies of the install files from the Office install disk. As long as you have this disk you don't need MSOCache.

Sure - as long as you have the disc. But some people don't.

.... better late than never, just copy MSOcache over to a back-up disk and bring it back if you need it?

That's what I intend to do.
