Temp folder

Post by Simeon » 20 May 2008, 16:35

Hi Christian

I have some questions:

Is there anything important dtored in the PopMan/Data/temp folder?
Or can its content be deleted after each run?
What is the mv.exe for?

Thanks - Simeon

The tmp folder is used to save attachments when you open them directly in PopMan. Therefore the content of the tmp folder is deleted automatically when closing PopMan.

The mv.exe is used for the auto update feature. It moves the new PopMan.exe from a temporary download folder to the PopMan folder in order to replace the old PopMan.exe. This is necessary because an executable is incapable of deleting itself.
