The operating system often buffers files temporary to unburden the memory. Normally, these temporary files are automatically deleted after having been used. Yet, even those deleted temporary files can be restored. Even if you SafeErase individual files, some of that information still exists as a temporary file - a restoration cannot be excluded. To make sure that these temporary files do not cause any damage we recommend removing them with O&O SafeErase.
With just a few clicks you can command O&O SafeErase to SafeErase all temporary Windows and program files. You are also able to select which specific temporary file to delete.
- On the start page of O&O SafeErase click on SafeErase temporary Windows and Program files.
- A selection of Windows and program files appears. Activate the check for the desired options.
- By clicking on Next you will get to selection of the Deletion method.
- After selecting the deletion method you can start the deletion with SafeErase now. All listed files will be deleted irrevocably.

For this, open the drop-down menu on Run and select To the deletion list. The deletion list stores the selected activity, so that you can load and run it as often as you want, without needing to specify your settings every time.
