Temporary files stored in MAC





annapurnatraders
does anyone knows where temporary files folder are stored in MAC?
badai
it's linux

where else but /tmp
xbcd
yeah i agree with the guy above. probably in /tmp folder. if you want to clear the tmp folder then just open a terminal or w/e its called in a mac and type
Code:
rm -rf /tmp/*

BTW i do not recommend this but if its what you want to do then thats the easiest way.

It's not Linux, it's Unix.

One minor gotcha is that /tmp is a soft link to /private/tmp.

Don't even think about doing that with a Mac. Some of the files in there might still be in use. The best way to clear it out is to just reboot.

my bad man. i don't have a mac. But i just figured it'd be fine. Sorry for the bad assumption. :(

I do want to get a mac however. it will be my next computer purchase
