Is your terminal server (or computer) starting to fill up on space? If so, clearing out your temp files could potentially clear up a ton of space! There are multiple ways of doing this, but if you have multiple users on your server that use the internet/server regularly, a program called ICSWEEP is perfect for you. It only takes a few minutes per user to delete all temporary and temporary internet files from profiles. See below on how to use it!
