Windows 10: Why Oh Why Is This Happening All The Time
Member DavidY was kind enough to do some testing.
He found that when eMail is opened, the App creates ancillary files in that folder that are used to read the mail.
When he closed the App, only the .tmp files remained.
When he first looked at the folder it was empty, so his take is that the App eventually cleans up. He's not certain if the cleanup triggers on age, time, count or # of times the App gets launched.
Basically, DavidY confirmed that the App eventually cleans up the temp files.
The fact that Revo finds them really isn't an operational issue - it might bug you that they're there ... but you can find all sorts of things that stick around for a while (for example previous MS mail clients cleaned up after so many executions - 100 was the default).
I don't think there's anything an end user can change.
That's all I have
Hi, I don't have the Content.MSO folder.. but as I said I don't use Mail so it's not a fair comparison, so if someone who does could comment...
Here's what DavidY replied to my request for more help on this issue:
Good.. case closed I hope- we've both commented on inspecting the date of the files. Thanks!
In case anyone's interested... I kept an eye on the temp files in that folder.
I had some .tmp files which were dated 14th August when I responded initially.
On checking back today, the 14 August files are now gone, and the latest ones in that folder are now dated 15 August.
So my experience would suggest the .tmp files get deleted after just over 2 weeks, although I don't use it as my primary Mail app so I'm not in there every day.
Thank you DavidY, your clear explanation was great. Thank you for your time
I recently purchased a new laptop (Dell XPS) with Windows 10. My OneDrive account has 1TB of storage and I copied 137GB and 1.1mm files into it.
It looks like much of the data isn't syncing at all. The icons for the larger folders all have...
