I was running CCleaner and notice two rather large files in my Temp folder. What are these relating to?

The .CAT file extension is related to the Advanced Disk Catalog Database.

It contains a catalog of data from various media types including hard drives, network drives, floppy disks, optical discs (DVDs, CDs, etc.), ZIP and JAZ disks, etc.; used for keeping track of information stored within a collection of media.

Thanks for the input.

I still wonder what caused them to be there.
