Files deleted in C:\Temp folder

Files deleted in C:\Temp folder

In windows computers, there are C:\Temp folder and C:\Windows\Temp folder.
I would like to know which of the folder get cleaned up (files in it get deleted)
using windows disk utility or CCleaner Utility.

The reason of this question is that I have noticed files in C:\Temp folder in windows server got deleted , I am not sure if this happened automatically or someone went there and deleted them.

Thanks

C:\temp is your folder not Windows. I use C:\temp on my own machines. Delete out of this what you want.

For C:\windows\temp, delete all files and those in use will tell to skip (OK).

Then when done run Disk Cleanup and check of all selections.

I agree with John with the exception that one can change the location of the %temp% folder by editing the environment variables.  The users temp folder is normally located @ C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp>
