Freeing up Disk Space

In our company, the computers we use have a very small C: drive.  256GB NVMe.  We are using ArcGis Pro 2.5 and constantly running low on space on our C: drive.  We would like to know some of the "Best Practices" to free up space used by ArcGIS Pro 2.5 inside each users profile (C:\Users\%usersname%).  What can we delete and where is it located?

The data we create and work with is NOT on the C: drive.  But we do a lot of work with large Raster Imagery.

Thanks in advance!

Project backstage.... Options, Display,   what is the size of your local cache?  Clean it out regularly, the more maps with lots of data, the bigger the display cache, Cleaning it out is only a temporary solution.  Too bad about your org. going on the cheap for local drives 

@KoryKramer 's recent performance doc may have some other info

obvious ones like garbage bin, any temp folder, especially those in your user profile that may be created/used by Arc* and any other apps

... sort of retired...
