Does anybody know what this temp folder is used for:

C:\Users\ppress\AppData\Local\Temp

PPRESS is the service user that is used for Production.

This folder currently has over 15,000 items in (over 2.5gb), which has a lot of folders named 'tmpxxxxx', 'ptkripxxxxxxxx' and 'miax' some of these folders are two years old so not very temporary!

Can this folder be cleaned up?

Thanks,

Files in this folder are definitely temporary, so don't need to be saved forever, and you may at least change the older ones.

We have the same thing. Could someone from Objectif Lune weigh in on what these are used for, and what should be the recommended timing/process of cleaning up the files?

Those files are created by third party libraries used in the software and can be safely deleted.
