Google gives me no results for this folder that appears in my project folder.

  • Can I delete it?
  • Can I disable it somehow?
  • If it's not important why is it not kept in Blender's temporary folder somewhere?

    $\begingroup$ There should be project called "learning" in the root of directory mentioned folder is in. In that project some baking was likely used, e.g. when baking simulation for fluid or smoke $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Oct 3 '18 at 19:34

Smoke simulations, and – if "Disk Cache" is selected – also cloth and soft body simulations, will create a folder called blendcache_$file where $file is the name of your .blend file (fluid simulations will create cache_$file instead).

Those folders contain the results of baking the physics. Deleting them clears the bake; to bring your bake around (to another computer) it's necessary to keep those folders as sub-folders of your project.
