    Leave it in the trash. It's just a cache file. Windows should just build a new one.

    Maybe I misunderstood you. I thought you asked if you should move it back to its original Windows folder. The answer to that is: No. Do not move it back to its original folder. Windows will rebuild a fresh version of that file on its own.

    You can simply empty it from your trash bin. Or are you saying Windows won;t delete it when you empty your Recycle Bin?

    No I was wondering if it's safe to remove it.

    Yes, it's safe to simply empty your trash bin and delete it

    I have followed your steps and I found all my usb and cd drives. I deleted INFCACHE1. But it is of no use. My laptop is not detecting my pendrive. My pendrive is working fine in other laptops.. How can I resolve this problem
