    Can someone help?
    I have a new computer. Anyway, the TMP files are always showing. i cannot hide them. I have gone to folders and clicked on hide hidden folders. But they still show. I am scared to delete incase it affects the real file. If this makes sense? So i have an excel file. I see the file AND its temp file. If i delete it, will it affect the excel data that is saved?
    It is annoying. Any new files added or changed makes a new TMP file.


    Any help?

    TMP or Temporary files are backup files or cache files created by the application being used. In this case, Excel. They are safe to delete. It is a good practice to clean your system on a regular basis. I recommend Ccleaner as a cleaning tool to keep your system uncluttered.

    O! and by the way, Welcome To TSG! :D
