Depending on which version of Windows you run, temporary files are usually stored in C:\WINDOWS\TEMP. This tweak shows how to move the location of the temporary file directory.
Open up AUTOEXEC.BAT with a text editor, it is normally found at C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT. If you're run Windows 9x it maybe possible to right-click the file in explorer and choose 'Edit'.
Add two new lines, or modify the existing lines if they are already there, as follows:
SET TEMP=[directory]
SET TMP=[directory]
e.g. SET TEMP=C:\GARBAGE
Save AUTOEXEC.BAT, create the directory entered above and reboot
