Temporary Files Created by Windows NT in \SYSTENT32AP


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1


Windows NT creates only one temporary file, TEMPPF.SYS. This is a temporary paging file created at boot time whenever the system detects that the current paging file configuration is not sufficient and might prevent you from correcting the deficiency. This file is automatically deleted the next time the system boots. In nearly all cases, a dialog box is displayed at logon warning the user of this situation. Additionally, the System dialog box from Control Panel is spawned forcing you to address the paging file problem.
