Hello my well versed friends,
Question for you.
I was cruising on my HD using disk viewing software trying to clear up space and I found this file in my Pro Tools plugins directory.
C:Program FilesCommon FilesDigidesignDAEPlugins


I would've left it alone since i had no idea what it's purpose was among my plugins, I figured it was some kind of template file or something, but it was an outrageous 9 GB so I deleted it.

Would anyone be able to tell me the purpose of this file and its importance?

I don't record to my system drive. I took a copy of my session from a system I used at my school (iMac - which was recording to the system drive, haha) and transferred it to my system so I could mix it. Do you know what creates this huge temp file?

I recently came across a large amount of plugins and I was playing around with them alot on a session, I'm not sure if that's related. Again, the temp file was in my plugins directory.

Most are freebies downloaded from kvraudio, but there's a few sketch plugins that I came across wandering upon some *ehem* torrents.
You suppose these would be the source of the temp file?
