In window XP Audacity creates a very large temp file which has to be removed or it fill up your hard drive. In XP it is easy to find and delete. I am now running Windows 7 Home Prem. and am running the 64 bit version of Audacity. My problem is I can’t find that temp file to remove. Win 7 dosn’t have the drill down ability that XP has and I am stumped. Does anyone have a fix for my problem?
Audacity creates a lot of (possibly thousands) of temp files in its temp folder.
This temp folder can grow very large while working in Audacity.
The temp folder should never be manually deleted as doing so can destroy your Audacity project.
The temp folder data contains the audio data of your project and the undo history.
If you need to reduce the amount of temp data, go to “View menu > History” and discard some undo levels. Note that when an undo level has been discarded then you will not be able to “Undo” past that point.
The temp folder is automatically cleaned up when the project is closed.
