Glenn Morgan <GlennMorgan@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> hunted and pecked:
Is there a way to set up a scheduled task to clear out Temp and Temporary
Internet Files? I would like to do this automatically before running my
backups (also in a scheduled task), as the default for ntbackup includes
these files for some reason. (Why anyone would want their temporary files
backed up, I have no idea. They're supposed to be temporary, so why treat
them as if they are permanent?)
I guess the other option would be to tweak my backup list so it doesn't
backup these files....
