The FolderSizes Temporary Files report provides a listing of any temp files contained within the scanned folder (and its subfolders).


Temporary files are identified via the temp file mask, configurable at the bottom of the report window. The mask is a semi-colon delimited list of character patterns – if a filename contains any of these patters, it will be considered a temporary file. Feel free to change the temp file mask if you wish to do so (your changes will be remembered automatically).


The Temporary Files report can be sorted by any column; simply click the column by which you wish to sort. Click the same column again to reverse the sort order.


By using the Export button, the contents of the Temp Files Report can be exported for external analysis or display.


You can print the Temp Files Report by using the Print button at the bottom of the report generator window. The list will print exactly as it appears in the report (e.g. in the current sorted order, etc).
