I just discovered this file today as well, and am wondering if this is something new with CC18.
I also discovered this files today. They also filled up my hole C drive. But it takes 43,6 GB of my hard drive.
And of cause I'm running out of space too.
I found this big files, by searching the reason, why my Aftereffects project does not render in the last day's.
I have chanced all locations for all types of cache files in the past on another hard drives (like F).
Every time i try to render my project, a window from Windows 10 pops up after a few hours and says, you don't have enough space on C.
But It does not render to C and it shouldn't do anything on my C disc. After that my Ae crashes every time.
Yesterday i have erased a couple of files on my C disc. So i have got up to 10GB back for use. But after a few more render hours the same problem pop's up again. But now i have the half file rendert to my E disc and my C disc have only 500MB left. My E disc have over 600GB free space left.
I have rendered the file as a tiff data, because i tried to see if it would crash on the same frames. But every time i render it out, it stops at another frame then before.
I also use every Program in the version of CC18.
It seams to me, that it would be an issue from CC18, because in the past it worked fine. And i don't have had any problems with not enough disc space on C in the past.
So please tell me someone if i could delete this crasy huge files with out problems!?
And why does they create them selfe on C with out my permission?
How could i stop the creating of this huge files?
Could this really be my problem for crashing Ae or does Ae crash first and then my C disc run's full?
I would send you a picture of it, if you wont, but i'm from Germany, so i think the picture will not help you at all. Windows runs on my system in Germany, but all adobe apps run in english.
Sorry for my bad writing skills, i'm better in understanding english then writing it my self.
I've just found this folder is taking up 71GB of space on my SSD, and I'm having really bad stability issues with After Effects CC 2018 due to the lack of space.
Did you find out whether its safe to delete these or not?
I still don't know if it's safe to delete. Is there any adobe insider who can answer?

I've tweeted the creative cloud twitter... hopefully they'll respond soon, I'll post up when they do.
I'm debating just deleting the folder and seeing what happens, to be honest!
Maybe you can try that and post the result here. Because I don't have the courage to take the risk...lol
Anyway, thanks for tweeting to them.

Ok, I just deleted the lot of them, plus all the files in my Local/Temp folder... After Effects runs fine after doing so!
What about other programs? Photoshop, Premiere, etc?

I can open up Premiere, and my last project with no problems, and Photoshop opens up without any problems, too.
Adobe needs to do something about these files taking up so much room!
Whoaa.. thanks so much for trying that. Now I can assume that it's safe to delete those files.
