Strange Temp files appearing in user profiles and startup
Posted on 2009-07-10
In recent months a lot of our users has been having profile issues, which appeared to be due to the sheer size of their profiles.
On further investigation it appears that the problem is actually temp (.tmp) files being created in their profiles, these files are named prfxx.tmp and they are normally about 8mb in size each. I have no idea where they are coming from but they are starting to cause real space & performance issues.
There are thousands of them in user profiles.
What are they? and how do I stop them from being created?
There is one attached.
