I have moved this to the Server Administration area of the forums.
So a couple of additional pieces of information would be helpful. What version of Tableau Server are you using?
When was the last time the server was restarted?
Have you tried the steps outlined here: Tableau Data Extract .tde Files in Temp Folder Consuming Disk Space | Tableau Software
I hope this helps,

are you talking about temp space on your local desktop machine? If so, I've run into this before and have had to delete the temp directory and haven't really seen any ill effects. Just make sure to have TD closed first. And no, I haven't found a way to prevent this.
That's what I was afraid of. Thanks Jeff. I will mark your response as the correct answer, since it is the best one I have found so far.
