Dear all,

Can someone please tell me the role of c:\program files\microsoft sql server\........\RSTemp folder. because its getting too big.

Also i am thinking of moving this folder to some other physical hard drive to improve the performance, because what i am thinking is that,,,
this folder is actively being used by reporting services and the drive on which this resides is already busy in doing some other stuff.

Can some one tell me its purpose and how to move it somewhere else?

Thanks in advance.

By default the location is on C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10.<<Instance Name>>\Reporting Services. Change this by modifying the rsreportserver.config file and adding the entry to the <Service> tag:

<Service> ---
<FileShareStorageLocation>
<Path>D:\RSTempFiles</Path>
</FileShareStorageLocation>
</Service>

Very helpful.
I see in my case lot of files with very old date stamp like 2009 , 2010 etc.
Can we delete these files ? Since they are only temporary files ?

The so called automatic cleanup by the Report Server does not seem to be operational at least in my case .

I ended up deleting the files that are old...to reclaim the disk space.
