what files are removed when clearing cache in solidwork pdm

     We are fairly new to SW PDM, we have the Pro version, and I am hoping to give the engineers a more clear understanding of Cache, and more importantly, what files are removed when clearing cache.


     For example, if engineers drag files into a folder in PDM, but do not check them into the vault, so remaining local only, I am assuming they will never be removed when clearing cache, is that correct?


     I am assuming that clearing cache only removes temporary data, such as when a part or assembly is selected and previewed, that is temporary data that is stored and cleared when clearing cache correct


Appreciate the help, most information I can find just is not that detailed, and I only understand at a slightly better level that our engineers, and IT's explanation is all book words.


Thanks again!
