The ArcGISSOC account’s temp directory (C:\Users\ArcGISSOC\AppData\Local\Temp) has files written to it during activities such as labeling, caching, geoprocessing, and SOC instance creation. Normally these files are deleted, but they can persist and accumulate if the application is not closed down properly. As these files build up, they can impact performance and take up a large amount of hard drive space.
It is good practice to delete these files from the temp directory periodically; however, the disc space in the ArcGISSOC account's default temp directory can be increased if needed.
Instructions provided describe how to change the ArcGISSOC account’s default temp directory.
If the ArcGISSOC user account is not listed, Windows User Account Control may be enabled (Server 2008 & Windows 7).
To edit the System Environment Variables for the ArcGISSOC user account, add the ArcGISSOC user account to the Administrators users group.
