mysterious (to me) file appearing

This file has started to appear in many of my folders along with the normal content. mxfilerelatedcache.mxc2

What is it and what's it doing? Can I safely delete it - or leave it alone?

Just after having a quick check on Google, there appears to be a number of solutions including removals. Perhaps far to many to provide individual links. Just put "what is a mxfilerelatedcache.mxc2 file" in a Google search box, and all might be answered?.

Do you have the program Music Maker? The files seem to be associated with it.

Or Magix programs.

Thanks folks - - I've Googled the question, spuds - and there are 100's of potential answers! Yes, Woolwell, I have several Magix programs - and the consensus from the Google links seems to be that it is associated with Magix products, and may - just MAY - be a rogue file!

When I delete it from a folder, it's not long before another mxc2 file reappears to replace the deleted one!

I appreciate your help!

Music Maker 12 may be the culprit.

Apparently the file is a Magix cache file see downloadatoz
