SSD Randomly Filling up

Ok I have a SSD as Primary and a 2TB regular HDD. When I Turn on the PC there is a surge of Storage from before I turned it off. After about oh 3-5 min it goes down and then starts to fill up to a certain extent. I have my Secondary Hard Drive for all my games/music/ECT. I have all documents going there aswell as all the Other Folders for Downloads/Ect. I have the Hybernation thing off. I am at wits end trying to figure this out I have Windows 7 BTW.

    Yup that fixed it must of slipped by me long time ago when I built this PC thank you very much. Have Rebooted PC now and it is not getting random increases anymore. Thank you again.
  6. How to I move to D:\Temp? I'm in where I can see the user variable and system variables but do I edit or new?

    I just BSOD and my ssd is constantly running out of space. My resource monitor is showing my system pid 4 is writing constantly :-/

    Thank you for any help!
  7. Where are you getting lost ?

    1. Create a folder named Temp on your Hard Drive, presumably D:\Temp

    2. Click through Control Panel / System / Advanced System Settings / Advanced tab / Environment variables Button

    You will see something like

    Temp = %Systemroot%\Temp

    3. Click on it and hit Edit button, change to

    TEMP = D:\Temp

    4. Rinse and repeat with:

    TMP = %Systemroot%\Temp
  8. Dude, you rock. But I just used ccleaner like a moron - I didn't do that before. Totally fixed it.
  9. Be careful.... at default settings ccleaner disk cleanup can remove things you may wanna keep in your browser.

    Also the registry cleaner should be used very judiciously.

    In the future refrain from reviving an old thread that has already been solved. Instead what you can do is make a new thread and link this one, specifying what is not understood.

    Also it could be a good idea to PM the person who solved that question. They might still be active on this forum.
  13. The reason I responded to this thread was because I googled it and this popped up. It's infuriating when you don't get a succinct answer so I helped someone in my position.

    Well that makes sense. I guess that is pretty helpful. Never thought of that. Anyway if you wanted to do that maybe post a clarification after you got one from another thread so people get answer points ;)

    Do I change User Variables? Do I change System Variables? Do I change both? You put instructions on here, but don't specify the most important thing.

    What does doing that do exactly? I haven't tried it, and I don't know what it would do.
