I notice that during the processing, Qimage produces large tmp files which it places in C:\windows\temp folder, unfortunately my C drive (a partition) doesn't have much space available, is there a way of directing Qimage to save them to a different folder?

I just checked my C:\windows\temp folder and there a bunch of zero byte files, but nothing from Qimage.
Are you sure of the path and folder, and do the temp files actually end in .tmp?

Also might help if you would post your computer style, ram, hard drive specs, which windows, and is the OS updated.
Then when Mike or another with a lot of knowledge of the innards of Windows sees the info, they have facts to work with.

You may be working with raw files which create temporary DLL files in the Windows temp folder.  They're not very big though (around 250K).  If you're that close on your drive that stores the Windows temp directory, I'd suggest freeing up some space or move your temp directory.  You need ample space for Windows and its programs to process data.

If you have less than 5-10% of your total drive size left, you're flirting with problems.  It'll start when defrag utils do not want to run.

BTW- a defrag may help anyways.

Yes the location is correct and I checked the date created and it's the time of the image processing in Qimage.

The files produced are : DSP5F1.tmp 263,732kb

I'm using WinXP SP2

When this PC was set up by the supplier (ironically to use ONYX PosterShop) the partition allocated to Windows on the C drive was only 5gb. I have asked on numerous forums over the years whether it was possible to increase that particular partition and I was faced with yes, but and maybe's, that pretty much involved using the CMD window so I gave up.

However yesterday while waiting for a possible answer here, I found this http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm. And managed to increase the partition to 30gb so hopefully it won't be an issue anymore.

Thankyou for comments people.

Here's a screengrab of the folder during the process/print, they are automatically deleted after printing

Are they part of Epson's spooling?

It's not important now, but I'd be interested to know  Wink
