Temporary Files are also created for backup purposes, by programs. Microsoft Office creates a Temporary File of the open document every few minutes. If you save the document and exit, the Temporary File gets deleted. If the program crashes unexpectedly, the Temporary File is not deleted. In these cases it will be useful to recover lost data.
Temperory files are stored in locations, %systemdrive%\Windows\Temp and %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp
