    Where are the Temp files stored and do them remain on the hard drive forever?

    Is there a record on the hard drive on which, if any, discs are copied?

    Thanks

    In MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows, the temporary folder is set by the environment variable TEMP. Originally the default was c:\Temp, then C:\Windows\Temp. In modern versions, the temporary folder is set per-user as Local Settings\Temp.

    As the name is indicative of, they do not remain on the hard drive forever. There should be no record of which discs are copied.

    Are they deleted AUTOMATICALLY?

    Yes. Many operating systems and some software automatically delete the contents of this directory at bootup or at regular intervals.
