Hi @CrownConsult,

Not only Bamboo but 3rd party add-ons make use of the temporary directory. For instance, when running a build 

So we can provide you with more information about those, would be possible to provide a list of the content in C:\Program Files\Bamboo\temp by running:

cd C:\Program Files\Bamboo\temp
dir \a \s > bamboo-install-temp-dir.txt

As a result, the command above will list all dir/sub-dir and file(s) (including hidden) and output them into a file called "bamboo-install-temp-dir.txt". If you could paste its content on this thread, we could have a look reviewing files that are being created and not being deleted.

If you do not want to make this information publicly available, then I would suggest you on raising a Support Case with Atlassian, mentioning this post. Once you get the answer you are looking for, please do not forget on replying to this thread , so others facing the same issue can benefit from your inquire/resolution.

Kind regards,


Thanks for the response.

I have actually deleted those files.
