Spool Folder

By teraine.stewart ·
Laptops with Windows 2000 Hard drives are always full to the capcity. After I have trouble shoot the problem, I discovered that a Folder named PRINTERS holds *.tmp files keeps holding on to these files. This folder can be found WINNT-->System32--->Spool--->Printers.
Is there anyway I can stop this from happening?

This is the fix for NT; it may work on 2000. Go to the Printers folder, right-click on the printer, click on Properties, and go to the Scheduling tab. Uncheck "Keep documents after they have printed".
