Service Account AppData folder size

Hi.

 

Does anyone have a strategy for deleting the temporary files in the AppData-folder?

 

We've currently passed 5GB, and the folder was emptied out a little over a year ago.

I'm pretty confident deleting the files doesn't cause any harm, but does anyone have any input on this?

 

Thanks

Re: Service Account AppData folder size

Ended up creating my own resolution here.

Ran on test-environment first and nothing seems to break.

 

Added the following powershell as a scheduled task. The script deletes all feilas and empty folder older than 150 days in the specified folder.

 

$limit = (Get-Date).AddDays(-150)
$path = "PATH_TO_THE TEMP_FOLDER"

# Delete files older than the $limit.
Get-ChildItem -Path $path -Recurse -Force | Where-Object { !$_.PSIsContainer -and $_.CreationTime -lt $limit } | Remove-Item -Force

# Delete any empty directories left behind after deleting the old files.
Get-ChildItem -Path $path -Recurse -Force | Where-Object { $_.PSIsContainer -and (Get-ChildItem -Path $_.FullName -Recurse -Force | Where-Object { !$_.PSIsContainer }) -eq $null } | Remove-Item -Force -Recurse
