What is a temporary file?

Question

I am doing a disc cleanup and I have 6,764,182 kb in temporary sync files that were created for syncing with my mp3 player (Toshiba Gigabeat 60gig). Do I need to keep these files or can I deleate them?

Answer

This question was answered on April 26, 2007. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

The 6,764,182 KB or 6 GB temporary sync files are just temporary; it means that these files are copied to your hard drive when you are downloading music from your computer to your mp3. You can delete these files as soon you finished downloading music, so your hard drive does not keep these temporary files.
