Using build 113020, win98se Temporary files are being written to c:\windows\temp and are never deleted. Mail-News: any message posted to a newsgroup get 2 files in temp - nsmail.eml and nscopy.tmp. They get a sequence number appended and therefore accumulate (ugh!). This does not seem to happen with mail (smtp), just news. Browser: some form posts get a formpost file in temp. These also get sequenced and accumulate. Try this: Go to http://validator.w3.org/file-upload.html and validate something on your hard-drive, then the formpost file appears in temp. Plug-ins: For RealPlayer(8) a file gets created in temp containing the url of the file to play. I don't know if this happens for other plug-ins as well. (This is what got me on to the problem to begin with, since seeing c:\windows\temp in the RP location bar caught my eye.) I don't mind files getting put in temp, but they ought to be deleted when they aren't needed any more! :)
