I have a 2TB drive in my computer I use for backups and such, but Windows keeps putting temporary files on it (Such as the VC++ Redist files) and then leaving them. How can I force Windows to stop?

Windows 7 x64 Professional

Hate to answer a question with a question, but I will: do you want it to stop doing that really? Is this the ONLY drive or do we all need more info? You have a 2TB drive, so I don't see where else temp files should go in order to assist you. They're going to be written and are needed, so...

Well, I have plenty of space on my C drive, and Windows has temp folders (usually)

Even if it would just go into a subdirectory. I don't want to see the root of the drive have 50 files I need to get rid of.
