I have noticed that when I do a replica download operation from our application that some temp files are being created and hidden way deep in AppData in sub-directories under: C:\Users\myname\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache...
The folders are so hidden that even with view hidden turned on you still don't see them. The only way I came across this was because there was a huge chunk of hard drive being mysteriously used, and I started doing file size searches as I narrowed down the location. During testing these temp cache files have grown to eating up almost all my extra hard drive space until I go through the manual search and destroy process. I am using Windows 10.
A couple questions:
- Why are these being created and not cleaned up once the replica is downloaded to the correct spot?
- Is there a setting somewhere (internet options, perhaps) that would help clean them up?
