JAVA temp files


the folder on the server ..\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\java\server\platform\var\temp seems to be filling up but not emptying

it has over 23,000 files, about 10 GB, since October 2008 (i.e. just under a year)

they seem to be a daily copy of each universe (52 objects 28 MB)

the readme.txt file in the folder says

This temp directory is used by the JVM for temporary file storage.

The JVM is configured to use this as its in the and geronimo.bat scripts. Geronimo is configured to use

this temporary directory rather than its default for security reasons.

The temp directory must exist for Tomcat to work correctly.

should these temp files be automatically deleted?

should we manually delete them?

are the temp files used by any saved files?
