I installed the software on a secondary partition, because my c: drive is done. But still when I run the backup, it is taking space from my c: drive. Whys does this happen and where is it located so I can deleted, before my computer crashes

Hi,


The temporary folder is located on C drive, the settings folder is also located on C drive. You cannot change those locations from FBackup as we use the environmental variables from Windows.


You need to change the location of your User folder and the location of the temporary folder for your system.

Thank you, I did install fbackup on d: drive which has more space, but it still was taking away space from c: drive. Can you please explain "change the location of your User folder and the location of the temporary folder". From where do I do this Fbackup Software? Please help is crucial my space is running out so I cant run it until you show me the solution. Thanks again!

Hi,


As that is a Windows modification, not related to FBackup, you can simply find the answers on the Microsoft website: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-files/change-location-of-temp-files-folder-to-another/19f13330-dde1-404c-aa27-a76c0b450818
