Hi all, been a while just kinda been out of the whole video thing for a while and just kinda got back into it.

I had to get back in the groove of things, I forgot how to use some of my favorite software...including TMPGEnc DVD Author...I am currently using ver. 3

If you use this software, be aware if you find that your hard drive space is disappearing it may well be this program.

Especially if you import DVD files to re-author your own discs.

To find out, check the following file:

C:\Documents and Settings\"user name"\My Documents\TMPGEnc DVD Author 3\dvd import

it seems that the program imports the dvd information but does not delete it automatically. I recovered 120GB of space by deleting the temp files that reside in this folder and it has been months since I used it last.

I noticed that my HDD space was getting smaller and smaller even after I had cleaned the drive, uninstalled a bunch of games and got rid of useless programs then I stumbled upon this and now I got back more than half my drive.

Good find.

I had a similar issue recently, a piece of software dumping large temp and log files in the My Document subfolders.

CCleaner can help you some too, it will remove junk files it finds.

You can set TDA 3.0 to dump those files into another directory - I do mine into \temp, so I can just purge them with my other programs litter.
