You need to set the java tmp directory attribute

-Djava.io.tmpdir=/path/to/tmpdir
One windows you could edit the wrapper.conf file and add an additional java parameter
e.g.
wrapper.java.addition.x=-Djava.io.tmpdir=C:\Somewhere

Oh just saw you are probably running the slave on Linux. :(

I tried doing that and it simply did not work. I'm using cygwin to run the java command to install a bamboo remote agent on Windows Server 2012 R2. I need to have cygwin running for a bamboo plan to succeed a build on this remote agent, because it sticks the git temp drive in /cygdrive/e/remote-agent-1/xml-data/build-dir/DAR-DAR-JOB1/.git/. Weirdly all the other properties are in E:\remote-agent-1/etc... as they should be.
