AI_RecycleBin Folder

I've recently been removing then reinstalling a clean copy of SNPP8 (I've also owned v6 & 7 too) and have noticed that huge volumes of Starry Night files ~ 40Gb worth ~ have been saved in this hidden system folder on at least 3 previous occasions in 2018 but not cleaned up (assuming any folder called RecycleBin should be recycling!).  Being hidden I'd never noticed before!  Can these safely be deleted and folder removed as I have no other program that uses same?

    Hello Jsessions,

    What is the path of the hidden system folder?  I can then tell you if it is safe to delete or not.  My gut says it is safe to delete but I would like to be sure.

    Thanks for reply

    C:\Al_RecycleBin

    All the files in it are SNPP8 (mainly SkyData) from 2018

    I can't see anything that would require these files so am inclined to delete.  Nothing else uses that folder.

    We do not use that folder so it should be safe to delete.

    Gone :)

    I can always restore from backup if anything breaks.
