Windows 7: Roaming directory

22 Sep 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit
Roaming directory

HI. Some years ago I messed about in Second Life for awhile, then gave it up as slow & clunky. I noticed recently I have some second life caches called 'secondlife' under the 'roaming' directory.

I assume it is safe to delete them?

What is the roaming directory for?

Don't delete anything from Roaming unless you specifically know what and why you're erasing :)

If in doubt rename files for a few days any problems you can role back after a week if there are no problems then delete after creating a restore point
