I have been blessed/cursed with a solid state Drive...blessed because the OS operates much better on it...cursed, because everything wants to write to this 64G divice, which keeps filling up.

So the GM issue part is there is now I get the warning that there is
'not enough disc space for the Temporary file in Folder:
C:Users|Craigdoll\AppData\Local\Temp\Gobal Mapper'
and I could not initially find the temp path option to change.

Is there any way to Relocate Temporary Folder to another Drive?
such as
E:Users|Craigdoll\AppData\Local\Temp\Gobal Mapper'

    You can either change the system TEMP environment variable through the Windows Control Panel, or you can run 'regedit' and create a string key named 'TempDir' in 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Global Mapper' that has as its value the path that you want to use for temp files. This allows you to override just the Global Mapper temp file path without changing the system temp file path.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
