If I look at my
%TEMP% folder (that is,
C:\Documents and Settings\Me\Local Settings\Temp\), I see some applications stick stuff in there, and some applications stick it into a subfolder off there. Sometimes those subfolders have names that can be traced back to the application or the author, and some are random.
- Is there any best practice here?
- Does it matter?
- Does the whole folder get deleted if you do a disk cleanup?
- What about
C:\Windows\Temp? When is that used by applications other than Windows itself - if ever?
