Vivado - What is the purpose of the .Xil directory for Vivado runs?

Description

What is the purpose of the .Xil directory that is created in Vivado Synthesis and Implementation runs?

Can this directory be moved to a different location?

Solution

The .Xil directory is a temporary bookkeeping directory used by the tools to lower memory usage during runtime.

All of the files created in the directory are critical to Vivado's operation during the run, and unfortunately this directory cannot be moved to another location.
