Visual Studio dumping many temporary files in %temp% frequently

Yesterday I deleted all files data from %temp% folder. Today I revisited that folder and I have over 1GB of temp files in it. This means in just a day I'm getting more than 1GB of temp files.

Please check the below images of my %temp% folder


There's a folder inside %temp% called q0rfsptd (with 800.5 MB)
Below is the image of data inside that folder


Almost all the files belong to Microsoft Visual Studio.
Why is Visual Studio dumping a lot of temp files? This affects the life of the SSD that I'm using. Becoz many writes will decrease the health of SSD.

Please solve my issue as a priority.
