    I am having the EXACT same issue with my 2013 EasyStart. I’ll be trying the script tonight – thanks!

    Holy… I can’t believe i found someone who knows what I am talking about.

    i came into work this morning and my 1Tb c drive was FULL, and yes it took me about and hour or two using ccleaner. to clear out the temp folder.

    But now as a precaution i decided to run CCleaner a few times, but each time it returns with about 300 mb of something called dbdata.dll i am worried that this is is an issue I will be seein everyday I come into work,

    You said you had a fix to this in your article? I would love to know how you killed this annoying bug.

    Couldn’t find any dbextclr11.exe file, but did fix the problem. When re-installing quickbooks to another computer, the company file did not get copied over to the default location. Did a quickbooks clean install & used their file dr., which asked to put the company file in the propert location. No more disappearing HD space. I do however have 400GB full of phantom files I can’t seem to find.

    So, the batch did kill it. C:\Program FIles (x86)\Intuit\Quickbooks 2013\dbextclr11.exe. Windows Diskcleanup got the rest of the temp files off. Cleared 3 PCs, over 1.5 TB of temp junk. Nobody else had a clue how to fix this. Thank you so much!

    So I don’t follow, where’s the script that you ran, and how do I recreate it?
