Re: Excel Temporary file not auto deleted

A temporary file is a file that is created to temporarily store information in order to free memory for other purposes, or to act as a safety net to prevent data loss when a program performs certain functions. For example, Word determines automatically where and when it needs to create temporary files. so there might be chance that some registry files got corrupted so make sure every thing working in good condition...for more check here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/211632

Microsoft files create a temp when you open a document so you can modify excel preferences. Also check your folders sharing options in some cases files not delete in the folder, then the temp file get created but never delete

The temp file that is created is generally for the version history and is an Office feature. Generally these temporary files will be deleted when the file is closed. What version Windows are you running? Under folder options view tab you can try to change it to do not show hidden files and folders or if you have TrendMicro antivirus then simply try to turn it off.

Win 7 64Bit with Office 2010.
James, I solved the problem. I turned off indexing in the effected folders.

Check if the user has deletion rights on that folder.
