You can find the path on the Files tab in Options. I usually reset it to my own path.

For Win 7 users the default location should be C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp

 

IMHO checking and clearing out this folder should be part of the normal system maintenance for all ACad users.  Mine has not been giving me any problems but I still had 532 files and 678MB of junk to get rid of.

Yup - dump it all.  Windows won't let you delete any files that are actively being used by programs.

Our solution ->  call Bentley.



In my experience, that software crashes at least as much.  And given that I've used AutoCAD for a lot longer, I find Microstation very frustrating.  It often takes me a couple of hours to do a task that I can do in C3D in a few seconds.  Although I've heard that people who start with the MicroStation products have the similar problems when they try to use C3D.

 

C3D 2010 did tend to crash a lot.  Not as much as earlier releases, but it wasn't all that stable.  C3D 2011 also has lots of problems that were fixed in C3D 2012.  C3D 2013 has introduced a bunch of new nightmares.  So far, I recommend moving to C3D 2012...  It rarely crashes on me, and doesn't have all the "surprises" of C3D 2013.  After C3D 2013 SP1 is released, then that might change, but I find C3D 2012 to be the most productive at the moment.
