Every email attachment in Microsoft Outlook when sent or downloaded leaves temporary files in your Windows PC. All these temp files get stuck in the temporary files folder of your PC. It is very important to delete these temp files not just to clear up disk space and improve the performance but also to avoid any kind of data theft risk.
The temp files used in viewing or adding an email attachment are all stored in the sub-directory of temporary internet files in your PC and if anyone has access to that folder, can see your sensitive information. Also, you might not be able to open or download any more of your Outlook email attachments if there are lots of temp files clogging your PC.
While we can always delete the temporary internet files manually from our PC, it is always helpful to take help from a third party application like OutlookTempCleaner, which is a free utility which can help you do this easily. With Outlook Temp Cleaner you can locate the secure temporary files folder & delete the temp files easily thereby making Microsoft Outlook run smooth.
