    Lots of files in C:\Users\[landesk scheduler account name]\AppData\Local\Temp

    ferrispd Apprentice

      I have over a gigabyte of files in this folder C:\Users\[landesk ad account]\AppData\Local\Temp

      Does anyone know if I can delete these?  or at least the very old files within?


      Thanks in advance,

          Generally, anything under "TEMP" should be safe to delete, unless it's currently in use (in which case, Windows shouldn't let you) as a general guide-line.


          It would help if you'd clarify whether you're talking on the Core or on client & what kinds of files you're looking at (as well as what version & what product you're talking about specifically).


          Those are files that Windows would be putting down more often than not - not usually a place that we do much stuff in specifically.


          Again - having a look at the files


          Also - "which" ad-account are we talking? COM+ needs one ... the LANDesk scheduler can actually do without one (you mostly need it to authenticate to access shares these days, really - so if you use UNC, you'll need it), LDDA does a few AD-ish things, etc. .


          Unless you've got separate accounts for all those, careful in assuming it's the scheduler (I've no idea whether you do / do not use separate accounts - just highlighting that this could be stuff aside from the scheduler) .


          But yes, generally, things under TEMP should be fair game for deletion usually ... for "feel good" it'd help having a look at the files themselves that you're talking about, but I strongly doubt that it's anything we'd worry over.
