I run Matlab 2020b and it has started creating temporary folders in my working directory. This is very frustrating because I have to delete these by hand and it prevents Dropbox from syncing some folders. I have checked 'tempdir' and it points to the right folder in C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp\
Does anyone know how to make Matlab use the correct location for the temporary folders?
Thanks
Joe

I have been trying today to reproduce this, but typically it did not happen all day.
Before, the folders appeared in my Current Folder. From memory, a "dig" folder was created when Matlab was launched and then a folder with name similar to
{1D0554CF-E47D-4B42-812E-27531C577960}
appeared every time I ran a Simulink model.
The only thing that has changed between yesterday and today is that I cleared my C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp\ but it was only 100MB so that shouldn't have been the problem
If it happens again I will make a note of when exactly they appear

According to matlab support, this should be fixed in 2021a, and also in 2020b with update 6 (end of july). Apparently, there is no work arround so far.
