Temp folder location

Hello I’m new here. I was wondering if someone could tell me where are the temp audio files are kept? I was able to export them to mp3 but I can see that the audio files have taken up space on the c drive. I am using Audacity 2.1.1 from installer and Windows 7. Thanks.

You can look at Edit > Preferences… then the “Directories” section to see the location of Audacity’s temp folder.

Audacity will clear out the temporary space that a never-saved project is taking by using CTRL + W to close the project.


Via Preferences: Directories is says the free space is 65.5 GB

/Users/unsername/Library/Application Support/audacity/SessionData

is empty
