    Is this folder necessary? This may be a really stupid question but this folder is 1.2 GB and I was wondering if you can erase it since it's just a cache to save space?

    You can't delete the folder itself, but you can certainly delete (most of) its contents. Any applications that had cache files there will recreate them.
