Hello all, I recently started recording COD using FRAPS. I have steam and COD loaded on my SSD and FRAPS installed on the HD storage drive.
After making a recorded game video if I don't like it I delete it. However, I've noticed none of the deleted .avi files are going to the recycle bin.
Where are they going?
I'm concerned because I don't what my storage drive filling up with discarded files.
Everything else I delete from the storage drive goes to the recycle bin but not the FRAPS .avi files.
files that exceed the limit of your recycle bin (default is 5-10% of partition's total size) will get wiped out
that's the usual case with frapsed files since they're 4gb big
right click on recycle bin>properties and increase the available capacity (it's different for each partition) to prevent this from happening
The recycle bin properties indicates I have 400GB of available space for the F drive. Under settings "custom size" it has 22554 (MB). The typical file size for a 30 second fraps recording is 276(MB). I think there should be enough room right?
I don't think the recycle bin is full to capacity.
