I show a lot of real estate being eaten up on my laptop's hard drive by stream_autocomplete and other stream_ files in the roam cache. Some are dated months ago. Can I delete any of these without suffering some adverse consequence? My Outlook files are really hogging a lot of space and I'm trying to recover some of it.

The stream files shouldn't be very big - mine are under 1MB. Autocomplete should be the largest.

At worst, you'll lose your autocomplete - but outlook will rebuild files it needs, so yes, you can delete them. I'd keep anything with current dates - but if you added or removed accounts from a profile or deleted old profiles, the old files probably belong to those now-deleted accounts.
