Which cache directories can be cleaned?

This help article on Temporary files and temporary files directories states that the temporary file directory should not be deleted: https://pdn.pega.com/sites/pdn.pega.com/files/help_v721/procomhelpmain.htm#concepts/concepts2/temporary-files.htm But it doesn't say if certain directories can be cleaned up or not.

As we faced some disk space issues in our project, we want to clean up certain directories. To do this, I've looked at the directories on the system and their purpose. Not all directories I see on the system are mentioned in the help article. An example of a directory we want to clean is the ...cache/StaticContent/global/ServiceExport as it contains the imported zip-files (which are formally stored in another repository).

My main questions are:

- Is it advisable to remove files in the temp directories at all?

- If so, which directories can be cleaned? I've made an initial assessment in the table attached.
