Cab_XXXX_X files filling the Windows Temp folder directory space.

PROBLEM

 

Cab_XXXX_X  files frequently getting created in the Windows Temp folder directory are taking up disk space and require regular clean-up (Figures 1 & 2). 

 

Figure 1 – cab_XXXX_X files in Windows Temp folder 

 

 

Figure 2 – cab_XXXX-X file properties

 

 

ANSWER

 

 

In <windows>\Logs\CBS folder delete the oldest .log file (you can also delete them all).

In <windows>\temp folder delete every cab_XXXX_X.
