My hard drive is always really close to full, so I'm constantly checking for ways to get clear up some extra space. Every time I do a search, there's always like a gig of .MOZ files in C:\RECYCLCER\NPROTECT. I see that these are files used by firefox, but why are the accumulating in this folder so fast? I've been cleaning it every couple of days and it keeps filling up.

My best guess right now is maybe it's something to do with utorrent? I have utorrent running all the time, but I don't see what it has to do with .MOZ files?

Thanks for any help.

.MOZ are Firefox temp files from browsing the web. When you clear them, likely by closing your browser, they end up in your Norton Protected recycle bin. They are a byproduct of surfing the web. Nothing more.

Well that's good to know, but does it make sense that I'm accumulating like 700MB to 1GB of these things in a couple of days??? There's only a few sites I even go to on a daily basis.
