I dug through the computers files to find the source and found that Discovery's Temp file is 21.5 GB. I attached a photo for reference. My question is what am I able to delete in order to free up space and what will happen if I do delete these Temp files? I also found a bunch of Temp files (~30 GB) from Discovery AIM from when I used that. I am assuming I can delete these as well since I no longer use that program. That is the second and third picture. Thanks Sam

I am not sure how the temp file size could be so big. Maybe some of your AIM and Discovery sessions might have crashed which resulted in storing some temporary data.
I think it is safe to delete the data from the temp folder.
