I have a couple computers at work that only use adobe to read pdfs but the temp files located C:/ProgramData/Adobe/Temp are extremely large. My PC is sitting at 128gigs, inside the folder are lots of folders with numbers, inside those folders are config.bin and installer.bin. What do I need to do to stop this from constantly filling or generating. It happens in the middle of the night when people arent using it, or when I am doing other stuff, I noticed thats today 3 folders were created at 1:57pm and 3 folders at 1:45pm which, at those times I was desiging in Solidworks. Any help? Some computers have small hard drives so we need to delete this folder often.

Is Acrobat the only Adobe application on those computers?  My Adobe folder has subfolders with the names of other Adobe applications to keep them organized.

My best,

Dave

Interesting - My folder sturcture is very different - Windows 10 64 bit, and a Creative Cloud subscription on board.  Perhaps someone from Adobe can chime in on this.  Good luck!

Dave M, your screen shot shows c:\Program files, while the original post shows c:\Programdata. This is Microsoft's place for apps to store changing files for all users. I have the folders shown in the second screen shot (c:\ProgramData\Adobe), and I have more, but I don't have Temp!

 

Anyway, the general rule is you can delete Temp files without causing much harm.

So as a test I uninstalled all adobe products that I am aware of from my PC and I am still getting the temp file under C/ProgramData/Adobe. Since I last posted this on September 14, its created 8.34GB worth of temp storage.

Any known fix for this Issue? My C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Temp is ~30GB 

Is there any impact if I delete the data , or is there any way to change the path to save temp file of Adobe?
