Our website isn't displaying because the C:\Windows\Temp directory can't be written to, because C:\ is now out of space. The reason: tons of sess_230498230493240 [random hash] files. Like, thousands.

php.ini is set to use C:\Windows\Temp for temp session files, but why aren't these being auto-deleted? What's the correct way to handle this?

I would set up a schedualed task, or use an temporary AppData folder in order to delete temporary php generated files
