    I'm attempting to free up disk space on an NT server with sp6. I have profiles for several users. I went through and deleted the temporary internet files in on profile folder and it seemed to erase it in all as all of the other profile Temporary Internet Files folders are empty. However, if I right-click on the folder and select properties it shows up to 9 folders and 15mb of data. But it's empty...I have check and I have show all files selected so they aren't hidden. The amount varies from profile to profile...any ideas? I need disk space and if I could clear 10mb out of 30 profiles that would be great. I just can't figure out what's going on...

    Thanks for any help

    It's probably the Content.ie5 folder that's in there taking up space. You should be able to delete the folder from a dos prompt.
