Windows 7: \Windows\Temp

disk-cleanupdisk-spacewindows 7

Trying to figure out where all the room on my new laptop went I found over 90GB eaten up by my c:\Windows\Temp directory.

None of these files I recognize and many seem to have not changed in months. Does anyone know what these oddly named files (prefixed with TMP) are and if they are safe to delete manually?

I used to know what Windows puts there, but I can't remember it right now. I do remember that it's generally safe to delete the contents of this folder immediately after a reboot.
