      Description

      I am using Moodle 2.3.1+. In /moodledata/temp folder, found a number of huge files with file name convention "assignment_XXXXXX", which is similar to the following. These files occupied large disk space.

      I want check with you what are these files, and why the files are created in /temp folder? Is it safe to remove these files directly from server?
