Temporary System Files

Introduction

This page is about the temporary files that WorkBook generates on the servers running it.
This page is not related to storage providers.

Files and their locations

Name Description Location Notes
.NET Temporary Files When running an ASP.NET website, the website is compiled to a temporary location. %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Temporary ASP.NET Files
%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\Temporary ASP.NET Files
These files can be deleted after you shutdown the webserver (iisreset /stop)
They will however be re-generated when you access the website for the first time.
IIS Log Files By default the IIS (Internet Information Service / Web Server) will generate log files for each request made to the website.
You can either disable the logging feature or delete these files periodically as the IIS will just keep spawning new log files.
%systemdrive%\inetpub\logs (default) We recommend that you setup a scheduled job to delete these files or use a log collection tool to rotate them.
WorkBook Update The update tool download’s some temporary files when updating an installation. Root: %temp%

Files:
Silverlight.zip
workbookv9.zip
UpdatePackage.c

These files will be re-downloaded the next time the update tool is used.
SQL Server Log Files Log files stored by the SQL Server, this can be deleted periodically as the SQL Server wont delete them it self. C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\<Your SQL Server Instance>\MSSQL\Log We recommend that you setup a scheduled job to delete these files or use a log collection tool to rotate them.
