Re: 50 gigs of temp files Locked...HELP

Been like that as long as I can remember. I got in to the folder and all that is there is a config file. No 500 MB worth of anything! I bet it's an error with Disk Cleanup.

I think your right, I uninstalled the twit view app and now I'm down to 145 gigs, that's where I should be...that app for some reason didn't delete the podcast after I watched them....I just installed it again and I'll keep a eye on it! Thanks Jim for you advice....

Re: 50 gigs of temp files Locked...HELP

It's getting better. At one time, I swear, one of the items indicated 1TB!

So what was the question about file history?

I was wondering if the file history was putting files in that temp folder, becasue my file history folder on D drive is about 60 gigs?

Re: 50 gigs of temp files Locked...HELP

It depends on what you have selected to backup. Review the settings.

BTW, I cleaned up that pesky folder with:

Free PC cleaner

Got it down to 1.42MB

Try cleaning your Google Chrome (in settings).

Re: 50 gigs of temp files Locked...HELP

You can customize CCleaner to empty any folder upon cleanup. You may even want to run 'wipe free space' once in a while.

Re: 50 gigs of temp files Locked...HELP

Well I found out what was the problem, the Twit View windows 10 app I use to watch podcast was using the temp internet folder to store the podcast files I've watched in HD and when I uninstalled that app all those files (60 gigs worth ) where deleted, I seen that by checking my C drive, but the Disk Clean app didn't until this morning, after the reboot this morning now my temp internet file shows nothing in Disk Cleanup! Crappy Twit view app isn't deleteing the files after I watch it, in fact I watch one about Windows Weekly and now I have 1.2 gigs more on C drive.....at least I know what's going on now and can get ride of the files when I want! Thanks everyone for your help!

Re: 50 gigs of temp files Locked...HELP

It is harder to delete huge amounts of data. It won't go to the recycle bin and I like to use the shift-del key.

BTW, I solved my problem. I tried all means to delete my folder/files and it would not do it. It was a Firmware update folder I DL from Intel to manually update firmware instead of letting Toolbox do it. I also discovered that the files I could not delete could still be moved to another folder. Anyway here is the key to deleting pesky files that will not go away. For example, here is how to delete files located in C:\Temp.

Go to Command Prompt.

Go to root directory (CD\)

Go to file folder (CD temp)

Type: DEL /F/Q/S *.*

It will delete all the files in Temp except the folders. You can then go into Windows and delete all the empty folders. You can add a null command after the command above if you wish to speed up the process and not view each deleted file on thousands of files.

Type: DEL /F/Q/S *.* > NUL

There is another command that will delete the empty folders as well but you can just do it from Windows now that the files are gone.

Type: RMDIR /Q/S C:\Temp

I edited a custom batch file you can use to delete folders and files. Create a folder called 'DELFOLDER' in the root directory and put all the files you want to delete in it. Create the following batch file and run it. It will delete the 'DELFOLDER' and all its contents.

@ECHO OFF
ECHO Delete Folder: %CD%?
PAUSE
SET FOLDER=%CD%
CD /
DEL /F/Q/S "%C:\DELFOLDER%" > NUL
RMDIR /Q/S "%C:\DELFOLDER%"
EXIT
