Any issues using this option under setting / users?

Local file clean-up
Automatically delete local read-only files that are not part of the file vault
Local folders and local read-only files that are stored only in the local vault view and are not part of the vault are automatically deleted.

Enterprise PDM uses a local cache mechanism; each vault view stores a cached copy of a retrieved file or folder.

For example, if a file or folder is deleted or moved in the vault from another client view, a cached local copy of the deleted file or folder is left in the local client views on other systems. This option ensures that these orphaned objects are cleaned up automatically.
