Subject Large FB temp file created ... what is it and is it OK to delete?
Author Theodore Zafiropoulos
Good morning,

I was looking at a clients system and noticed an abnormally large temporary file created.

The file was called fb_sort_4mlopc and it was in the C:\WINDOWS\Temp folder. The file was dated 26/07/2010. It's size is 560,749,148KB

What would cause this large file? Some sort of (perhaps aborted) sort process?

The current DB size is 25,193,928KB

I am inclined to delete this temp file as I don't think it is necessary. Is that OK to do so?

Current version of Firebird is

Thanking you in advance.
