    Pretty much title. Windows creates massive amounts of event logs into my temp folder. Clearing it out just cleared 650 GBs (I have a 1 TB SSD) and in the few minutes I've been doing other things it has already created 10 more GB of logs. is there any way to either stop this from happening or just disable windows from creating these? Even just a program that deletes the temp folder often would be greatly helpful, thanks in advance.

  2. What is the difference between %TEMP% folder and the TEMP folder in C:\Windows\TEMP ?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you would like to know the difference between C:\ temp and %temp%. We will assist you.

    Windows Temporary files are created by the operating system during the normal course of its running when there may not be enough memory allocated for the task.

    Software which use large amounts of data like Graphics, Video or Media editing software also create temporary files.

    Temporary files are also created for back up purposes by its respective programs. These temp files are left behind even after the task is over which leads to disk space usage.

    The Temporary Files in Windows are typically found located in two locations:

    • %systemdrive%\Windows\Temp
    • %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp
    The Temporary files created by the Windows operating system are usually stored in the %system%\Windows\Temp folderand this is where the system itself will put temporary files during installations.

    The temporary files created by the User when running any software is stored in his user profile at %userprofiles%\AppData\Local\. The other folder typically located at C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp, is created for each User. This folder
    is hidden and you will have to first ‘un-hide’ System folders from the Folder Options.

    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.

  3. Help to get Event ID 15 - ACPI to stop logging in Event Viewer


    Not sure if this is the right section, if not please move to the correct one.

    Under the details tab in Event Viewer when a logged event has a GUID that shows up in the registry under HKEYLM > System > CurrentControlSet>Control>WM>Autologger>EventLog-XX I know how to disable the event from logging, but Event ID 15 - ACPI does not have a GUID.

    Does any one know how I can get this to stop logging? From what I have seen on the web only a fix to the motherboard BIOS would fix it and I doubt that this is high on Asus' list of BIOS fixes for the R6E. Everything I have read on the web says that this is meaningless and in the General tab it basically says to ignore it so I would like to get this to stop logging in Event Viewer.
