26 GB in AppData\Local\Temp

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just checked my AppData\Local\Temp folder which is taking 26 GB on my SSD. Is it safe to delete these files? Funny thing is, these files don't show up when you right click on the disk drive and use "disk cleanup" wizard....even CCcleaner doesn't show these files.

Yes delete them all, you should move your temp files to you data drive. Right click my computer, then properties, then advanced system settings. Under advanced tab, click environmental variables button at the bottom. You will see 2 variables: TEMP and TMP. Highlight them and click edit and choose a path on your data drive. 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.

^ Yup, it does your internet files too though? I swear... Cause it helps with caching of sites, that is why a lot of stuff gets saved.

He is right though, move those off the SSD.

Its a temp folder. You can delete it. You can add the directory to Ccleaner and it will delete it for you.

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?

Thanks!

Hmm... nevermind I guess. I checked today and the 12gb file is back on my main drive. Weird that happened but I guess all is back to normal now.
