How can I stop the generation of all unwanted files?

How can I stop the generation of all unwanted files?

Every time I log in CREO Parametric 3.0 to create a part it creates a lot of files with extensions like .txt, .log, .err, .inf.

What can i do to stop this? or is it necessary all this stuff for the parts to work?

Re: How can I stop the generation of all unwanted files?

.txt and .inf files are used to create on-screen displays. .log and .err are to let you know how the software is operating and should be looked into if there's any question about how things are going.

Generally you can delete these files as they are in-work items that aren't used between sessions.

We have a startup script that runs. Aside from coping the company config.pro and other settings it deletes these files that we don't want. You could do the same.

FYI, here's my list of files my batch file erases in my start in folder...

del *.inf*

del *.ger*

Some of the files are required while Creo is running. They can all be deleted after you exit creo.

You can create a BAT file and run it separately to delete all of the Creo generated files or you can edit the PTC startup BAT file to call your BAT file to delete the old files before starting a new session.

How can I do that?
How can I create that BAT?

Any chance of associating these extensions with the function that generated them?

That would be worth pinning somewhere
