I see that the "Adobetemp" directory has grown VERY large on my HD.

Since it is "named" as a TEMP directory...can it be dleted? Or can it's contents be deleted?

I am running CC version 19.1.8 on Win7 64bit.

Thank you,

Hi JP91306,

The AdobeTemp folder under Windows is used by Creative Cloud desktop app and other Adobe apps for saving temporarily available updates or complete application downloads while the download and install process is going on through CC desktop app. The Local/Temp folder for your user account contains useful logs like amt3, oobelib and PDApp logs which can be used by Adobe technical support for investigation purposes on encountering application malfunctioning issues.

You may clean both the temporary storage folder without affecting the functionality of working apps. Note that you might have to sign back into Creative Cloud desktop app once after deleting the temp folder.

Thanks,

Akash
