Disappearing Temp folder?

We have a client, using FMS13 and FM13, Windows, using 360Works' Scribe and ScriptMaster.

 

Tuesday, several users reported a number of issues. Things had run fine Monday, and we'd made no changes, so it was a bit of a head-scratcher. After much troubleshooting, we discovered that for several users, the temporary folder identified by get ( temporarypath ) simply wasn't there. We use that folder for juggling files (such as pdf's we populate with Scribe) and for various import/export routines that create records from templates.

 

We've added steps, with ScriptMaster, to check for the folder and create it when necessary, so the immediate crisis is averted, but we've not determined the root cause. Deleting that folder programatically from FM (using ScriptMaster) is a pretty deliberate effort, which we didn't do, and finding and deleting that folder manual would be a pretty deliberate action by a user, especially considering that this happened on multiple machines (including the server, where we connect via Remote Desktop Connection).

 

Has anyone else experienced this oddity, who could perhaps suggest what may be the cause?
