    What is this $WINDOWS.~TMP folder that I never saw before


    This folder just appeared on my D: drive. Why in this drive? It appears to be connected with updates, because the "replacementmanifests" folder has 355 items. Overall, it takes 4.7 GB, and wastes backup drive space. Notice the WindowsOld.wim file, 4.6 GB.*Mad

    Is there a registry setting to move this entire folder to a different drive? My D: drive is for "real" data.

    Moderators: I wasn't sure if this is the right forum for this issue.

  2. annoying tmp files in downloads folder

    Hi all,

    for a while now my "downloads" folder has been full of .tmp files that make it impossible to find any real downloads in the folder.

    I read online these files might be associated with chrome, but I don't know the steps to deal with this issue.

    would appreciate help with this

    Mainly ESD-Files

    Hundreds of MSI####.tmp files in C:/ Drive

    Here's what helped me:

    The ICACLS command.

    Imagine my Windows ID is Joseph and I have hundreds of MSI*.tmp empty folders on c:\. I'm not going to change the security properties of each one, giving JOSEPH-AND-MARY\Joseph the ability to delete MSI1234.tmp and all the other MSI*.tmp folders.

    No, I need a miracle! The ICACLS command is that miracle.

    Step 1:

    icacls c:\MSI*.tmp /grant JosephWhat is this $WINDOWS.~TMP folder that I never saw before :(F,DE)

    Step 2:

    Now you can delete those pesky folders in Windows Explorer or any utility that deletes empty folders.

    (Note: I did run TAKEOWN c:\MSI*.tmp first, so I'm not sure if that was necessary.)

  7. What uses Tmp and temp?

    in Windows 10 Support
    What uses Tmp and temp?: The Windows OS uses those folders. In the old days, you could safely delete anything in those folders as it didn't matter. Now days, I'm pretty sure Windows 10 will monitor delete and update as necessary. 148332
