Temp directory, how do I..

How do I change the size of my temp directory or is it possible? I'm using a program that lets me edit mp3s, but this time the file is pretty big 250mb. It keeps telling me there isn't enough room in my temp directory. Normally is just edit the standar music file, but this time I recorded something that was really long. (4hrs)WTF?

I have XP BTW. Thanks

Normally windows control the size of this automatically, you can over ride this setting or set it to manual by doing this.

Start
Right click "My Computer"
Left click "properties"
Left Click "Advanced"
Left Click "Performance tab"
Left Click "Advanced tab"
At the bottom under Virtual Memory left click "Change"
Select "Custom Size" and set to what you want.

Again normally windows controls this and it is fine, but play with that setting and see what you can do. Mine is set to Initial size of 2046 and Max size of 4092 on my xp machine.

I'm not so sure if temp directory = virtual memory in this situation.

The Windows "temp" isn't normally size limited from what I remember...so what I'm thinking is going on here is either you're actually filling up your entire hard disk or the program you're using has its own temp directory and settings relating to it. Some audio editing apps I've used do this. I'd check the preferences/settings/whatever in the program you're using to see what its temp directory is set to, and if it has its own setting for size restriction on that directory.

...what *are* you using to do the mp3 editing, btw?

Whoops.... I read what he was doing but assumed he was talking about virtual memory... I guess I need to read more carefully...

Shagz, I'm using Creative Wave Studio, it came with my media center computer. It's been ok for the smaller files, but this one seems to be too big for it.

R1L I tried the changes you suggested and it was a no go. The preference tab for the program will only let me change where the temp file is created. Did that several times to no avail.

I know CWS is not a great program so there may be no fix. If you guys know a decent program that might be able to handle up to a 300mb file that would be great. Prefer a freeware app if possible. Thanks guys.

Once upon a time I used CoolEdit to do my audio waveform editing, though I haven't been doing much of anything on the Windows side of things for quite a while.

Many open source programs you'll find will not necessarily have MP3 writing support due license conflicts between their code and the mp3 encoding code. Most will handle decoding of mp3s just fine, though...so if you've got something you can convert between formats with, you'd be fine. Personally, I've been using sweep and audacity for audio editing as of late...though nothing specifically with mp3s.

Do be sure to poke around CWS's settings for stuff about temp directory location and restrictions. IIRC CoolEdit did the same type of thing where you set a temp directory and a limit to the size it would write there within the program itself, as did a multitracking program I used to use called nTrack Studio.
