    What is this large folder?


    I noticed this folder contains c. 6GB of files - C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Containers\BaseImages

    What's the purpose of that folder?

    No idea. I don't have it.

    I use Wise Disk Cleaner to clean up oddball stuff, and one of the options there is to delete "Baseline Installer Images", because after a successful update, they are no longer needed. They can get quite large. Probably why I don't have all that.

    Thanks - where is the option to delete Baseline Installer Images in Wise Disk Cleaner since I can't find that option?

    It would be here, Under Slimming. Doesn't show for me cause I've already done it. Do the scan first.

    The large folder in question doesn't appear there for me nor can I find anything by Googling.

    It was a shot that's was it was. Obviously not. Still, I don't have that folder or files, as posted. What do some of the files in it look like? The names?

    I'e copied the folder tree below. I experimented with Defender Application Guard recently then removed it. Is the large folder a hangover from that?

    You have a build that has Sandbox enabled? My Google on the path got this as the first hit:

    I am not sure, but there may be a difference between installer baseline cache vs installer baseline images. The former may be related to installation patches of some kind and the latter may be related to the upcoming Sandbox (and Containers) feature ? If you haven't yet tested the Sandbox feature on an insider build then I am completely mistaken.

    some info on baseline cache:

    baseline images:

    (Treat with caution, I might be completely wrong).

    It's Sandbox. Look at the tree structure of his files he posted.

    Steve.... if you go into Programs and Features and uncheck that Sandbox, reboot, it'll probably go away.
