Hi Kimiagar,
First you should try and identify what process is holding those files in TEMP.  You can use a command line tool like "handle.exe" from http://www.sysinternals.com/utilities/handle.html  (they have many other great tools too, all free).  This is a DOS command line tool. Then having identified the process that owns the files the next step will be to figure out what that process does, and you can google for the process name if nothing else which will give you some clues.
Do not delete files in TEMP without knowing who or what they are doing there.  By the same token, it is a good idea to keep a close eye on TEMP from a security and system admin perspective.
best regards

-------------------------------------------------------Hi all,

Please let me know, Is it possible to delete the TEMP
Folder content without considering anything else?
I don't know, whether the content of this folder is
related to exchange mail flow or not? Coz when I try
to delete them, Some files are in use and I got the
Access Denied error so I should go to safe mode to
delete them but I am not sure nothing wrong happen to
server operation?

Thanks in advance.
