Do anyone happen to know, with regard to delteing temp files, if I can just do a blanket Erase, or will this potentiallly damage autocad drawings. My temp file is on my local drive, but all of our drawings are stored on a network drive. It seems to me I remember these things storing up over time with crashes, etc. But as they build up performance seems to dwindle.
These files range from .tmp files to Texture folders, .cvr files, and nonsense names like A$C5DCD5F31.
Can I just window and Delete All?
Thanks in advanece for any assistance!
Thanks! Do you think that I could actually direct all users temp file to a single network location and weekly clean it out...might be a little more effective than leaving it up to the individual user. Thoughts?
I could be wrong but I doubt Windows would allow its temp folder to be placed on a network resource and I don't think that's a good idea either.
By temp folder we're assuming you mean "C:\Users\users-name\AppData\Local\Temp"?
No, this just needs to be cleared from time to time on each machine.
I made a shortcut to the temp folder, and in the shortcut a keyboard shortcut CTRL-ALT-T. Every time I close down C3D, I check the temp folder. Might be overkill, but then maybe not. I have a co-worker who had never cleared out temp. He had something like 30,000 temp files! No wonder his system slowed down to a crawl!
