Uploading large videos to a Share site, creates temp files (apache-tika-xxxxxxxx.tmp) as large as the videos. Alfresco running on Windows is unable to clean up these temp files
and they occupy a large amount of space. Alfresco running on Linux does not have
Steps to Reproduce
1) Using a windows installation of Alfresco, upload an mp4 video file in a Share site.
A temp file (apache-tika-xxxxxxxx.tmp) of the same size of the uploaded video is created in C:\Alfresco\tomcat\temp directory
2) This tmp file is never cleaned up.
Apache tika temp file gets deleted automatically at some point or when the tempFileCleaner job is run
Apache tika temp file remains in C:\Alfresco\tomcat\temp directory
Tried changing the properties of the Windows Tomcat Service to log on as a Windows user
rather than the default System user, however this did not make any difference.
Delete the files manually
Change the location of the temp directory using java.io.tmpdir in alfresco-global properties, so that a larger volume can be used.
