  1. Hi -

    Try as I may I cannot find what is causing this

    A server at the School I Work at is filling its Temp Files with CAB files around the 60mb size and is doing this at least twice a day.

    The server is used as a SQL and File Server only and has no unecessary processes running on it.

    Has anyone witnessed this before or know of a solve?

    this sounds like an application / custom code that is not cleaning up after itself.

    a COMMON necessity of servers is to cleanup once per day all temp files created prior to today.
    This is achieved with a chron job the runs ~midnight + X minutes every day.
