Adobe Temp Files

This is more an Adobe Acrobat Reader question, but since we are only using
it for JDE and everyone else is using it as well here I thought it would be
a good forum to ask. We have a large number of Adobe Acrobat temp files that
are being created in the C:\winnt directory of the enterprise server. These
files accumulate to fairly high numbers (hundreds), but what is more
concerning is their use of disk space. Most of the files are 0k, but some
are very large 10-100mb, and it does not take too many 100mb files to eat a
drive's space.
I have verified the TMP/TEmp settings in the environment variables (system
and user), I even looked through the registry to see if there were any other
settings that Adobe may be using but cannot locate anything that would point
Adobe to write temp files to the \winnt directory. Does anyone experience
this issue or come across a fix? At the presant, I am just going in manually
and deleting the .tmp files from the /winnt directory once a week.

Thanks,
John

Pretty much everyone on NT experiences this and you've already found the
fix....manually deleting them once a week.

I've already logged an enhancement SAR with JDE. We should see it
implemented sometime in 2008 if we're lucky.

Unfortunatly OneWorld cannot control where these files get created. Starting in SP13 and in OneWorld Xe, OneWorld uses the Adobe's code to produce the PDF files. Pre-SP13 and pre-XE, OneWorld
used JDE's netTemporaryDir setting which control the location of these files.

Adobe temp files are created when a UBE is failed or killed before compl=
etion. When a UBE is finished, its PDF gets copied to Print Queue from Te=
mp Directory. =20

My suggestions:
1. Educate users not to kill a UBE (especially large UBE) unless necessar=
y;
2. Delete temp PDF from Temp Directory periodically.
