    Is that 126.70MB really bothering you? Also, you can't necessarily delete all temp files. Some are still used by the OS or other programs you may be using. They just happen to be in the temporary file area.

    Got 200mb temp files and 1mb free space, so that means no apps and no sync

    if you really wants to delete then on settings-date change 2100 from 2014, then open storage check, there your all temp file will be around 3-4MB & then after go to date and correct your date

    Damn, that date trick worked! I had 12 gigs or so of "Temporary files", undoubtedly detritus from all my podcasts downloaded using ipodcast. Was getting down to just a few gigs "free", but changing the date to 2100 shrink the size down to just a few mb that I was able to delete using the delete option. Now I have half of my storage back!

    I had 1.78G in temporary files on my Lumia 1520. I went into Bing/Settings/Delete History. Now I have 7.58MB in temp files. Wow, who knew Bing was such a hog? This was after spending time with a clueless Nokia tech support person who suggested wiping my phone.

    I got this info from the Windows Tech Support "Help" pages. First time it's actually been helpful. Good going MS!
