If I delete the entire folder Local Settings\Temp, will it recreate itself?

This would be a convenient way not only to periodically clear out the .tmp
files but also to remove all empty sub folders, instead of having to delete
them manually.

I know that if I delete the History folder it does recreate itself, and I
hope the same thing applies to the Temp folder.

But before doing so I would appreciate an informed opinion.

Many thanks.

Hi

Yes, that folder will be re-created as necessary - that is if you can delete
it.
