How to clean temporary files ?

The normal operation of SCIA Engineer produces a substantial number of temporary files which can assume a considerable size. These files take space on the hard disk at the point that, with time, they can generate memory and/or other issues that can affect the correct behavior of the software.

Hence, it is a good rule to periodically clean these temporary files.

To do so, the user should remove all the content of the temporary file folder, which by default is:

C:\Users\your session\ESAXX.X\Temp


  • “your session” is the name of the user session in the PC
  • “ESAXX.X” is the version of SCIA in use (for instance, ESA19.1 if you are using SCIA 19.1)

Note that to successfully remove all the temporary files, SCIA Engineer should be closed.
