Using Vista and Outlook 2007.

Found article:

http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/securetemp-files-folder/

and

Vista moves the Temp Internet folder to

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\,

so you'll need to look there for the OLK or Content.Outlook folder.

When i delete temp int files, i go to:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\,

But i just hit "cntrl-A" and delete all so there isn't a "OLK or

Content.Outlook folder"?

I also recently discovered more temp files by not clicking on my user name

but the generic "user" and found more but again i just hit "cntrl A" and

delete all:

C:\Users\users\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

I researched further by clicking on:

http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/securetemp-files-folder/

where i found:

To view the securetemp folder, at Start menu, run, type :

%temp%

and expand the Temporary Internet Folders branch to show the OLK* folder(s)

in the Folder list (left side of screen). Click the Folders button in the

Explorer toolbar (or View, Explorer Bar, Folders) if the folder list is not

shown.

Of course for me this just takes me to the temp int folder which now only

contains a few more temp files needing to be deleted. THere is no "OLK"

folder.

I also found the secure temp folder and Office 12.0 was already in there:

At start menu, Run, type regedit to open the registry editor.

Browse to this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\xx.0\Outlook\Security

OutlookSecureTempFolder value

SOOO,

Bottom line question is am i deleting temp files correctly by deleting

everything in:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\

and after i do that why are there still temp int files when i go to:

C:\Users\users\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

Do i need to create an "OLK" folder within temp int. folder being that i

deleted everything in this folder already?

Bottom line; Run Disk Cleanup to remove temp files, & dont worry about

anything else

Temp Internet files can be deleted within IE Tools, where you can also

ammend the size settings for temp

Have you even tried running Disk Cleanup?

For the most part your questions were rhetoric

Perhaps I should have added, for the most part your points relate to your

o/s, with only the oblique reference to the OLK folder

No. Windows Explorer will not show folder structures below Temportary

Internet Files unless you know the name of the folder and include it in the

Address bar manually.

No. If you do manage to delete the OLK folder, Outlook will create a new one

for itself. Why not use the registry key described on the web page you cited

to a folder over which you have more control?

I am finding temp files when i delete them from:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\

but then i find more at:

C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\

Question is why after i delte temp files under my user name then when i go

Then you have two users, "username" and "user" with Windows accounts and each

user will have his or her own Internet termporary files. This, however, has

little to do with Outlook. You can put Outlook's Secure Temp Folder anywhere

you like. It doesn't have to stay under Temporary Internet Files where you

can't see it by browsing in Windows Explorer.

When i purchased computer and signed on for first time, it asked me to name

computer so i put my name and that's also what i see on c:.

The "User" file was default and came with computer. Should i delete this

then? I've never opened it up and when i do, it's basically a duplicate of

my name; Sandy??

Question2:

As far as delete temp files, am i doing this correctly by doing what i'm

doing:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\

what is the secured temp file and do i need to worry about that?

thanks....and DL, i have no idea what your response meant but all i can say

is to stop the one line responses because i haven't understood ANY of your

replies!!!!
