Hi everyone!

I have a Windows Server 2012r2 and i had installed moodle server inside the C disk. Moodle has its own temp/backup files, but Windows folder also has huge data consumption(temp folder), 190 gb. Whats interesting is, in temp folder there are only php.tmp files with its huge data. If i delete it, will my moodle work properly? Any suggestions?

Thanks!!

    You'll need to ask moodle or in their forums.

    Hello,

    Regarding Windows file, you can run Windows Disk Cleanup to detect and remove unneeded Temp files that Windows creates.

    Reference: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/disk-cleanup-in-windows-8a96ff42-5751-39ad-23d6-434b4d5b9a68

    About Moodle file, it would be recommended that you post your question on a Moodle forum, since it is not a Microsoft Product and also their community would be better experienced in exactly the effects of deleting or preventing such accumulation of files.
