When does Windows clear this directory? The only time it seems to is when running disk cleanup tool one is given the option..
Windows never automatically cleans the %TEMP% directory. It is only cleaned manually, either by deleting the files yourself or by programs like Disk Cleanup or cCleaner.
Developers using temporary files are expected to clean up after themselves.
