Se Ate My Disk Space?


desmo907

Question

I am using SE to digitize some older cassette tapes. I have a drive on my laptop divided into C and D. C drive had about 3 Gig (of 16) open when I started to record. I am however saving the files to my D drive as it has lots more space (9 Gig of 12). I recorded a tape and left the home a few hours (and let it run), and when I got home the tape had ended and SE was recording nothing but I see messages from Windows telling me I am out of C drive space. So I kill SE and EMC7 since it all seemed frozen. No file was saved but my disk space on the C drive is down to a few Meg of free space. I even restarted and ran my WindowWasher. Where did my 3 Gig go?

 

I figure SE used some cache<?> files but now I cannot get it back. I have done nothing else so I am figuring it has something to do with SE.

 

Suggestions?

Get a large hard drive. You already pushed the limits of doing anything. Temp files need to be emptied.

I assumed it was using some temp file space but how come it doesn't empty it? Where is it hiding all the files?

 

I cannot do anything at the moment with my internal drive and it only makes sense to upgrade the laptop as its only a 1.6Gig speed anyway. I use an external 120Gig for video (after capturing it locally on D).

 

thx,

Go into Documents and Settings/User Name (which is the name that you are signed in with)/Local Settings. You will see a Temp folder and an Internet Temp folder. Delete the content of both of those folders.

 

The Local Settings folder is a hidden folder, so if you don't see it, go to My Computer/Tools/Folder Options, click on View, scroll down to Hidden Files and folders, and click in the circle to the left of Show hidden files and folders. Click on Apply, then Ok. You will be able to see the Local Settings folder, now.

Thx, It was in the Temp folder. I figured it was there somewhere but this was hiding :)

 

Maybe I should add this folder to my WindowWasher program (a product from WebRoot) - since it cleans all the temp files, etc.

Check the documentation of WindowWasher to see if it will add it. It should. I use SpySweeper but have not purchased the WindowWasher program, yet.
