Tons of SAS*.tmp files in Windows' local %temp%.

Recommended Posts

https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r32942152- and I noticed this too. I'm using SAS in my decade old, updated 64-bit W7 HPE SP1 PC. I don't run SAS all the time too (only manual updates and scans).

Thank you for reading and hopefully answering soon. :)

These are normal, and can be deleted periodically if you want.

Thanks. Shouldn't SAS be automatically deleting these SAS*.TMP files if not needed anymore instead of users doing it?

It should be deleting the ones that it doesn't need. There's no way to know just from looking at the files if they are required, or in use by the software.

Hmm, I wonder why it is leaving so many files behind then.  Example right now:

I have a similar number of temp files as well. This is normal. You can continue to delete the temp folder as desired.
