Windows 7: Caching Issue

@Roncerr,

It appears that the files are being dumped here:-

C:\Users\Stephen\AppData\Local\Temp\MessengerCache

This is happening even though I do not USE Messenger, nor can I see it running in my Processes.

? ?

Is any messenging software installed? If so, uninstall it. Also, what are the NAMES of the large files, including the file extensions? That might provide a clue as to where they came from also.

Here's a copy of the CCleaner Results.
There's also a Thumbnail cache file that's 1024kb in size

Looks like CCleaner says your TIFs are in the wrong place. Go to Tools/Internet Options/Browsing History Settings. Make sure the location of temporary files reads "c:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files". If not use the move folder option and navigate to the "Windows" folder within that tree. When you're done the location should read as above with no mention of the folder "Temp". (I'm guessing "Temporary Internet Files" should not be a sub-folder of "Temp".)

Roncerr,

I tried to move the Temp Internet Folder, but in the Folder you suggested there are two further sub-folders.

Have uninstalled the Messaging software, and this has helped to a certain extent.

Will monitor and update with any further issues.

Thanks for your help.

I have all my external drives set to "quick removal" option, so I don't have to use the "safe-removal" option. On my internal drives, I have it set to "Enable write caching." It says that a power outage could cause data loss. Since I always use the "sleep" option, is this option...

For the write caching experts
On another thread I had stated that there will be a performance hit if you turn off write caching for a SSD. But on second thought, I am not so sure any more. What write caching allows (in my understanding) is to accumulate records in a buffer so that so that they can be written to the disk in...
