    Hi,
    i was trying to extract a very large file (46g) to an external hard drive, i used the drag and drop way (wich i shouldnt have used it seems after reading a few articles) so the file started to extract in 7zip default folder wich is located somewhere in C:

    But of course i ran out of space, i canceled everything but now C: is completely full thanks to those files i extracted. So i want to remove them delete them.
    But where are they?

    Thanks alot for your precious help

    PS my OS is Windows 7

    The working folder is specified in 7-Zip under Tools -> Options... -> Folders

    By default it will be the System temp folder. The easiest way to get there is by pressing Windows key+R (for the Run window), and put in the following: %TEMP%

    Directories that 7-Zip uses for its temp stuff start with "7z"
