Hi - it's me again! :)

I seem to be accumulating a lot of files in the Temp Folder - I've cleared them out three times now and the last time there were 55 files in there!!! The file names mostly started with IMT...

I *think* this happens after a sync, but I'm not positive about that.

Is it OK just to delete the lot every now and then or should I use a program like the one on this page

As always, thanks for any advice or comments. :)

Sorry about the page stretch on that link - really the forum software should be able to deal with that. My Invision software does... ;)

P.S. I'll delete it as soon as someone has answered. :)

Ah, I didn't realise you allowed html here - forums mostly use some form of BbCode. ;)

Chrissie, I use Memmaid since its first release. I have it set to clean the Internet Explorer cache and temp folder on every soft reset.

You will find out that the temp folder is small if compared with the Internet Explorer cache if you browse the Internet a lot on your Pocket PC, like I do.

Of course it would be good to find out what are these IMT* files. 55 of them is quite a lot, but what's the size of these files? If they are just 1KB each then that is ok, but if they are 100KB each then it's bad...

They were all different sizes, I didn't really notice how large, but I *think* some of them were quite large.

What does it mean?

I could just do another sync and see if it happens again?

No I was wrong, it happens when/after I use MS Reader. Some of the files are 500+

*Edit* I think this may be because I didn't close the Reader on exit - seems a lot better now. I'll try the trial version of Memmaid.

Thanks again. :)
