    C drive fills when ripping to external hard drive

    Hello,

    I am using a Windows 7 PC machine (still) as the built in CD/DVD player has done a very good job of ripping using CD Ripper. I have been very satisfied with Release 16.4, which I am using.

    My problem is that despite successfully ripping to an external hard drive, for some reason, my C drive is filling up and being that is nearly full, eventually it fills and I have to continually find data to purge, move elsewhere and uninstall programs. This is not sustainable and I have another couple hundred CDís to rip still.

    An example is a typical classical CD that I just ripped; about 400 MB, caused a decrease in C drive available capacity by more than that amount. Strange. And I am only ripping CDís with that computer, no other activity.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. And by the way, I couldnít find any related posts on the forums.

    Many thanks,

    Allen

    Which encoder are you using?

    In a Windows File Explorer type into the address bar:

    %tmp%

    see if files are left in there after ripping

    You should update to R16.6 there could have been a bug which has long been fixed (R16.4 is around 2 years old).

    Thank you for your reply, Spoon.

    No, there are no files left there in Temp. And yes, I will update, thanks.

    Please excuse my ignorance. I donít know which encoder. Please advise how to find out.

    Thanks,

    Allen

    by encoder he means, what files are you creating? mp3, FLAC, WAV, ALAC, m4a, etc.

    Will my settings/configurations be maintained upon upgrading to D16.6?
    Thank you.

    In order to upgrade to R16.6, please confirm that the "Install Registered Software" button on the Registration Retrieval page of your website is the correct one to select. And that one will maintain my settings/configurations?
    Thank you.
