Disk space and temp files

Question ID: 107731

I have a few loadgens that seem to be stowing test temp files in a very odd place. This location is on the C: drive, when it should be on d:\\temp. This is running my load generators out of space on the C drive quickly. The even stranger thing is where they are being put= C:\\users\\serviceaccountname\\appdata\\local\\temp. Has anyone seen this issue?

Could this be an issue where the admin that set up the machine has the profiles environment variables set wrong?
