    The content of the /tmpfolder should be removed, when you reboot the computer. If this does not happen, something is very wrong.

To delete this folder, you have to do sudo rm -rf /tmp/<your folder>

    Warning: Use rm -rf with care and generous double-checking. A typo in the wrong place can devastate your system.
