im trying to download a rather large gaming demo...
the sizr of the file is larger than the space on my C: drive...

i chose to have it saved to a differant partition that has enough space to
store it.
however.. the file is being sent to the C: drive (temp im guessing) until it
is completed then copied over the the save drive.. but the C: drive is being
filled first then gettin a msg stating there is no room on the drive and the
download is stopped.

how can i change the location of the windows temp folder so i can get this
file completed.

THANKS!!

Change the location of your Temp directories by changing the user and
system environment variables in the System Properties.
