Temp File

P: n/a
Hi,
I know this isnt the right place to post but I thought maybe some kind soul
could help! I'm looking to clean up my pc a bit and get some disk space
back. My Temp file in Winnt is very very heavy. Is ther some cleaning up I
can do or are all the files essential?
Thanks a lot in advance,
S.

As long as no other programs are open (especially Office), it is safe to
delete anything *.tmp or *.TMP from your HDD. (at least, I've never had
it kill anything)

Don't forget to empty your recycle bin.

Then run the defrag utility - this can take several hours, but on a
heavily fragmented drive, can really speed things up.

So why didn't you pick a group that would be more suitable to your OS?
Do you not think that you would get better answers there than you would
in one that's for JavaScript queries?

Go away.
