regtrans-ms and blf files

Posted: 04-18-2009, 05:13 AM

I have a questions you may be able to help me with.
The route of my User directory has accumulated a lot of .blf (21) and
..regtrans-ms (42) files which are taking up over 22 Mb of disk space
Examples are:
ntuser.dat{0ad09973-e8c7-11db-b39d-0019d1481925}.TM.blf
ntuser.dat{0ad09973-e8c7-11db-b39d-0019d1481925}.TMContainer00000000000000000001.regt rans-ms
Are these files needed? At what stage can they be deleted and the space
regained?

Hey Freddo,

NTUSER.DAT file is an important file that is actually the user's registry.
With that in mind, that file will be called NTUSER.DAT and not
NTUSER.DAT{0ad09973-e8c7-11db-b39d-0019d1481925}.TM.blf so it's not a huge
problem if they're not around.

Those files are created dynamically to prevent the registry becomming
corrupt - basically whenever you make a setting it will be written to files
such as that instead before being written to the real file - that way if
something goes wrong there is a recovery option.

You shouldn't cause any problems by removing those files (obviously don't
remove NTUSER.DAT) but to be honest you might as well leave them around.
It's not a lot of space and at the end of the day, they're going to keep
getting recreated anyway.

I hope this helps a little.

Best Regards,
Jon
