Windows 7: Q: Deleting temp files?

Q: Deleting temp files?

What is the best way to clear up the files in the folder?
C:\Users\<<username>>\AppData\Local\Temp

Disk Cleanup does not scan this folder, so does not select it for deletion. One app that I installed left behind its installer file (almost 2 GB) in this folder. And I don't really want to back it up every time in Acronis True Image.

----------
Also, what is the best way to tidy up Windows Error Reporting files? How can I safely delete files in this folder?
C:\Users\<<username>>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue\

Disk cleanup just emptied that folder for me. To tidy WER files just click the Clean Up System files button and repeat...

i suppose you could make a new library, and add the two locations to it.

then any temp files added to either of the two folders will end up in your easy-to-find library, making them easy and quick to delete.

while you're at it, you can add \windows\temp.

(or have i misunderstood what you wanted to do?)

*edit* too late - i see you have found a solution now...
