Resending this one as the original seems to have got lost


I recently upgraded my Me to XP professional SP2. It works OK except that I
now have "Web/Client Publishing Temporary Files" which will not remove when
I use Disk Cleanup. I have been trying for 2 weeks now but they are still
increasing. They started at 2300 kb and are now 3200kb. I thought that maybe
they would be set to auto delete after a set time but am now doubtful as I
cannot find the settings.

Any assistance please?

WebClient/Publisher Temporary Files
[[The WebClient/Publisher service maintains a cache of accessed
files on this disk. These files are kept locally for performance
reasons only and can be deleted safely.]]

If you are not using the WebClient for anything (like Publish this file or
folder to the web), stop the service.

As disk cleanup is not deleting these files and I cannot find where they are
stored, can you give me information where they can be deleted from please.

I maintain our Seniors Web Site and often upload pages but disk cleanup
always shows mine as 32 Kb, no more no less but always the same.

To the best of my knowledge he doesn't use a web site.

Hi Joe,

I am posting this before seeing a reply from Kelly.

I am *guessing* that WebClient/Publisher Temporary Files are somewhere in
%homepath%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

I am *guessing* that the 32 KB you are seeing is an index.dat file.
index.dat files are Hidden System files.

See Kelly's post.
