(Win2012)Temp Files created in <Alfresco-Home>\tomcat\temp are not deleted

    Details

      Description

      Problem Description
      ================
      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
      this problem.

      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.

      Expected Behaviour
      =================
      Apache tika temp file gets deleted automatically at some point or when the tempFileCleaner job is run

      Actual Behaviour
      ==============
      Apache tika temp file remains in C:\Alfresco\tomcat\temp directory

      Notes
      =====
      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.

      Workaround
      =========
      Delete the files manually
      (or)
      Change the location of the temp directory using java.io.tmpdir in alfresco-global properties, so that a larger volume can be used.
