About temporary files - get rid of them (II)
Here is another tip to cleaning up Windows' temporary files. Thank you to Mr. Frank Fallon of Australia, who has a site with similar Windows tips. This works with Windows 98 and Me:
To clean up temporary files, you use these command lines:
DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\FF*.TMP > NULI prefer to place them in a batch file. I have the file clean.bat placed on my desktop on my Windows 98-based PC. It holds the mentioned lines, and is easy to execute, being placed at the desktop:
DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\COOKIE*. > NUL
DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\TEMP
DELTREE /Y C:\WINDOWS\"Temporary Internet Files"\*.*
When I run the batchfile, the commands are executed one by by one:
It really cleans up - very fast and very efficiently.
Mr. Fallon also recommended a handy temp cleaner. It is a little program which may take care of these problems. Download it here, if you want to test it.
