    I received a notification in my RAS server that the C: volume was filling up. Fired it up and looked, only to find 7.5GB/56,000 individual .tmp files (RASo_O?.tmp) in C:\Windows\Temp\RAS\

    I'm pretty sure these are being generated by the remote administrator server software, and they span all the way back to december 2010. I believe this is when the server was virtualized from a physical box, so the contents of the Temp directory wouldn't have been moved in the process.

    Why isn't the software cleaning this garbage up occasionally?

    I've encountered the same issue, though the RASo_O?.TMP files are in the C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Local Settings\Temp\RAS\ directory.

    Just deleted over 10GB of them ... the remaining ones (I kept today's .. for now) are all 220KB in size and a new file is added about every 5-10 minutes (usually about every 5 minutes).

    Any ideas anyone?
