Dear all,

trying to save a large project I get the error "can't write data to stream". This is because during the saving my harddisk C fills up completely. I cannot identify which file it is. After Manifold failed saving, i.e. after the error message the C drive has the original free space again. Manifold is NOT installed on the C-drive and none of the paths in Tools\Options\File locations points to the C-drive, i.e. they point to a drive with plenty of free space. Where does Manifold try to save this (probably temporary) file and how can I redirect this to another drive?

Thank you very much for any help in advance!

Sounds like your Windows temporary file location to me (i.e. OS setting and not Manifold setting). Worth reading the help section on optimising performance BTW.

OK, thanks a lot! The help is of no much help if you don't search for the right thing.....

I pointed the Windows environment variables TEMP and TMP to another location. After 2 reboots everything worked as it should.
