11-21-2010, 06:06 PM
My computer is running with Windows 8 64 bit ultimate. The partition size of C:/ is 30 GB, but after I installed windows 8, there is only 16GB left. With the time goes by, the size is becoming smaller and smaller. And it is useless to defrag it. So I want to change the position of the temporary files. But I do not know the detailed steps.
Pls do me favor!
Thank you very much!

Windows maitains a location where programs can put temporary files and it's fairly easy to do so.
Windows has a concept of a directory where it, and other applications if they so choose, can place files that are for temporary use only. Fire up a Windows Command Prompt, (typically in Start, All Programs, Accessories), and in that windows type SET followed by the Enter key. Windows will list a number of what are called "environment variables" that make various types of information available to running programs. Two of them will look much like this:
TMP and TEMP both specify the directory to be used for temporary files.
Then What you need to do is click on My Computer and click on Properties. In the resulting dialog click on the Advanced tab, then Click on the button near the bottom labeled Environment Variables. You may see both TMP and TEMP listed in the section labeled User variables for (account). That's the common location; each different login account is assigned its own temporary location.
