When MS-DOS sets up your computer it puts this in your autoexec.bat
When I had some trouble with my system (corrupted files) I was told to
re-install DOS. It worked, but I lost some files that I had put in there
(as a convenience as it was in my PATH [I was backed up and retrieved them]).
However they said to keep my DOS directory virgin, and put temporary files
in a separate directory. So I change my autoexec.bat to read
SET TEMP=C:\TEMP (of course created a TEMP dir)
I've not seen any pro's or con's from this move.
So, my question: Is there an advantage to one of these configurations?
