Hello,

 

While searching for some  *.mp4 files, I happened across many of them stored in subfolders under:

 

c:\users\user\AppData\Local\Adobe\Lightroom CC\Data\cryptic path\proxies\720p.

 

Does anyone know what these mp4 files may be? Are they duplicates? I certainly didn't store them there.

 

Also, I've already purged my video cache.

I can only guess that you have-

Lightroom (v3.4 Cloud based) installed, or Lr on Mobile devices.

You have videos imported to Lr (either from the desktop PC or from a mobile device)

 

The {...\Data\....\proxies} folder I suggest contains small 'Smart Previews' of your Cloud stored files (including .mp4). Smart Preview files allow you to view/edit files if the computer is off-line.

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 9.4, Lightroom 3.4, Photoshop 2020 (21.2.1), Nikon DSLR, Windows-10.
