Basically just make a folder called temp and with 2 sub directories TMP and TEMP and put them in there.
Temp files are just...temporary files, you dont need them after you are done with them. Its basically a temporary folder for extracting exe's and installers and such or when you run a program instead of saving it.
Hi, sorry to revive this old thread, but I had the exact same question and found this thread.
So I tried the steps quoted above because my C: ssd is kinda small and I have a large D: and it gave my more space than expected (yay!). I looked around to see what happened, and my pagefile.sys was moved from the C: drive (where I store my OS and programs) to my D: drive. Is that OK or should that file be on my C: drive?
