Just a quicky really.

I use ATF every night on closure of my system. As you know it cleans millions of bytes and only takes a few seconds. I like it and never had any trouble.

Question ?

Obviously I know the meaning of "Temporary", they are temporary files created by programs and left as residue. But I read once that some temporary files are more than it seems and deleting them can cause problems. My personal understanding is that they ARE temporary and can be deleted. Programs simply re-create them if needed.

Windows temporary files - they amount to quite large number and up to now I have not had the confidence to delete them.
Can I ?

ATF does not give any details of what is to be deleted, just the result. But BleachBit does. I have 9898 Windows temporary files amounting to 321 MB all under "Documents & Settings - Local Settings - temp"

Many thanks
John

Hi JB,info. on deleting temp. files :) INFO


Hello 24th Foot,

I read the INFO and some say DO IT, others say DON`T, which leaves me as I was to start with. So where do I go from here ?

My grateful thanks Shaffer, that`s what I like - a positive answer.

I will blow them away tonight, so if I never come back on the Forum, my machine`s integrety has been wrecked.
