    MSOCache


    Hello
    I notice my Office 10 folder is huge ?650 MB. I have the disc for repair so is it advisable to remove eveen if space is not a problem ? Is this done by revealing all files and folders and deleting the folder?

    The MSOCache is essentially there to allow you to install additional office components/features. You can delete it using the included Microsoft's cleanup.

    MSOCache


    I opened all hidden files and folders and rebooted. With F+F open, the cache did not show up on the disc cleanup so I removed the folder via Windows.
    Is this OK or should I do an image a redo the procedure?

    Should be perfectly fine as is. If you want to add additional features to Microsoft Office, use your install media and it will most probably re-create the cache again. Otherwise, it just uses up space on your hard drive.
