    I just noticed, while using JDownloader, as long as Eset is on, every new download which is directed to D: drive is causing a lot of free space in C: drive to get eaten up.. I contacted JDownloader developers and their claim was that it is caused by the anti-virus program which scans the URLs.. I checked that claim and found it correct..
    I was wondering where are the cache files of those scans so I could delete them once in a while?

    Thank you.

    that sounds very much like your AV expanding the file in the temp area in order to scan it. Empty temp folders?

    Are you using the latest version, if not install it in case it fixes the issue?

    Use disk cleanup in Windows (Cleanmgr.exe) or a third party program like ccleaner to delete temporarily files.
