I am curious, why are you using a folder
C:\IBM in the first place?
If you use the
__Download when doing bigfix actions, then it gets cleaned up automatically. This works in probably 99% of cases.
If for some reason that doesn’t work, then I would recommend creating a folder under
C:\Windows\Temp that you delete at the end of the action or when you are done with it. I would recommend starting the name of the folder with
BigFix_ so you know where it came from and that if it sticks around for some reason, it is acceptable to delete. You can even have a fixlet/task that cleans up old folders automatically.
You can even use a parameter called
tmp or similar and use that to store the path to the temp folder you are going to create folders within, so that way it can be more easily changed for different OSes. ( typically on *nix you would use
In general, creating folders at the root of the drive is not a good idea and should be avoided.
