I have a 248,388 sized something in my temporary files - should I delete it?

I did a disk cleanup & this came up

It seems quite big - how do I see what it is?

Do you need to remove it?

Are you using CCleaner? That I find is safe to run (having changed settings so it does not delete cookies, as I like web browser to remember things).

Nope just the windows disk cleanup thingie on accessories

It runs slow & frustrated me

I would say that if a cleanup tool found it, its ok to delete - the tool should delete it for you rather then you having to manually find the file.
All sorts of things can be in temp files - it could be part of a download, part of a movie, part of anything. It is just a temporary store of something.

That's what I thought

It's just a tick box; delete or not

Hmm I'll watch it for a day or so

Do you watch films or tv online? I often find pretty huge files in the temp folder after I have, maybe yours is something like that.

Oh, CCleaner is well worth installing! I find it better than the built in tool, and does other useful stuff too.
