Calibre filling up Windows Temp folder

I notice there is A LOT of left over temp directories w/ images of books I've imported to my library (cbz, png, epub, jpg, pdf, docx, mobi, etc)

This is stored on %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp\

Some of these temp files were books I added 1+ years ago

WRT Calibre... is it safe to purge this directory?

I'm surprised Calibre doesn't clean up files it writes to the temp folder.

Can I change the setting to tell Calibre to write to a folder that is NOT on the same partition as Windows?

calibre always deletes all temp files it creates unless it is shutdown uncleanly/crashes.
