    You can use AttachmentsDirectoryDelete=1 so that Notes deletes all temp files when you restart Notes Client.

    The Notes client is supposed to remove temporary files when they are not required any longer. In case you want to do more cleaning yourself, delete all %temp% files during startup of the operating system.

    We have requirement to auto delete the files which user had opened from Lotus Notes document.

    Lotus Notes have functionality to delete the files regularly once user close and restart the Lotus Notes client application from its temporary folder location.

    We are providing document link to users. If user click on link, it opens the attachment not the document. This document contain only one attachment, i.e. one document contain one attachment only.

    Now when user open the attachment, the file save in temp folder path, which we are getting from Environ("Temp") command in Lotusscript.

    For example, Environ("Temp") return the path location "C:\Windows\Temp".

    Our requirement is to save attachment in Lotus Notes's temporary folder location; for example in "C:\Windows\Temp\notes90C43B".

    This "notes90C43B" folder cannot be same, it varies depend on Lotus Notes version and other factors which we don't know.

    If we successfully extract the file in Lotus Notes's temporary folder then it will be get delete automatically when user restart the Lotus Notes client and file is not in use.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Customer would like to get this info in one of their applications through Lotus script.

    TempDir$ = Environ("Temp") will provide System temp folder. However Notes generates

    a random Notes temporary folder under the temp folder and currently the name of the Notes temporary folder is not stored any where and hence could not get the handle of that.

    Can you please provide more details on the background of this request? What would you like to do with this temp folder? For your own applications, you can read the temp variable to obtain the sytem temp folder name.
