Thanks Ralph on this  

Never knew about this one, but I do have a few small questions .. 

So this does not clean out, deleted users?  (* like removed (few) years ago I see.. ). 
if I see users that are still working but are'nt getting updated in cache, is that normal? 

Im asking because I see, people working and getting there cache updated and few not. 
before I start cleaning up.. I see lots of very old user that don’t belong in there anymore.
