I use Microsoft Windows on my PC. I discovered a folder this morning in my Local SettingsTemp folder titled JMapViewerTiles_Bob in which there were a further six folders: Bing Aerial Maps, ITO OSL, Mapnik, OOC OS 1_25K, OpenStreetMap and OS OpenData StreetView. They contained 25,000 files in total, over half of which were in Bing Aerial Maps. Some files date from late 2010, the others from late 2011. I joined OSM in May 2008 and have contributed edits to its mapping since August 2008 using JOSM. I suspect the files relate to WMS and Imagery Preferences in JOSM but do not understand if it is I or an introduction into JOSM itself that has caused them to be created since those dates. Is there no alternative now but to regularly remove the files from the Temp folder?

This thread on the josm-dev mailing list should answer your question.

In short: Yes, it is the folder where JOSM caches images for TMS like Bing. You can remove it from time to time if you feel that it needs too much disk space. Otherwise just ignore it.
