Where is Microsoft Outlook Temp Folder? (Windows 7 and Outlook 2010)

Ever wondered where Microsoft Outlook stores temp files?

It is useful to know this location, so you can go there and delete the multiple copies of attachments and pictures and other Outlook files. It can also be useful if you are looking for an attachment contained in a message that you deleted by mistake.

For Outlook 2010 running under Windows 7 go to:
C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook

In this folder you will find that there is one or multiple folders named with a random combination of numbers and letters, for example: 82UOSVIP
Inside this directory you will find attachments and pictures stored by Outlook.

If you are curious. This is stored in a registry entry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Security
Value Name: OutlookSecureTempFolder
Data Type: REG_SZ

If you need more info, or you are looking for the temp folder in previous versions of Outlook, go to:
