    Temp Files (WinXP Pro)

    Is this the way my temp file change should look. I have noticed that sence I put my Temp files on E: Partition that when I pull up E: and look At disk cleanup I don't see a temp file to clean. I don't know how to put both boxes in one thread so I will put one here and one in next thread.

    Hey Cowboy, Yeah, that looks right. Not sure what the disk cleanup utility looks at. Are there temp files on E:?

    I think you made the root directory of the E drive your TEMP directory.

    Try setting TEMP to E:TEMP

    That will make the root directory on the E: drive your temp directory (you do have and E: dirve don't you?). That is OK if that is what you want, but I do not think that it is a very good idea since the root directory has a limited number of file entries (varies with the disk type but is usually 512 for a hard disk). That means your system could start having some really strange errors if you get too many temp files. Subdirectories are only limited by the size of the disk, so it would normally be better to point TEMP and TMP at a subdirectory like E:TEMP.

    Can you show me snapshot of what that should look like after I edit Environment Varibles & System Varibles.

    They should both point to the same directory, probably E:Temp if that is what you named it. You will need to create that directory if it does not already exist.

    How do I find out if that directory exists. And if not how do I create it? I changed it to what you said but it still does not show the Temp files on the Disk Cleanup.

    Use Windows Explorer to navigate to the E: drive and see if there is a directory there named Temp. If not, right click in the window, select "New Folder" and click on OK. Type Temp to change the name.
