How to clear temporary files?

by osmica » Fri Jul 19, 2013 12:52 pm

I want to write here a short intersting fact. I use Windows 7 in Croatian language.
Till today I couldn't find the reason why sometimes Autopano want't work and displays me that no enough space on C:
It was really thrue, every time afther I start detection of more panoramas at same time the disk became full. When I use disk cleanup and other functions, even manual cleaning, nothing happens. I need to restart my PC and than I have again free space on the C: disk.
I found what was the problem. I click on Edit - Settings - General
and there was the default setting for temporary files in location: C:/Users/(user_name)/Local/App data or whatever else, I can't remember.
The problem was that this folder did not exist on my PC. It was something else in Croatian language and I don't have any idea where Autopano was storing the temp files :/
I had only to change that location and I set it on the D: disk in a folder I named "Autopano Temp" and I made a shortcut on the desktop. Now afther I finish working with Autopano, I just need to delete all content from that folder from time to time...

Well, I am a regular user and don't know what a better way to do the same. But I have fixed my problem. Hope this will help other users with the same problem to understand why that happens and fix it.

Hi!

Windows 7 is multilanguage designed, so the real path for i.e. the user profile is always the same in every language, but windows translates it. In my german windows I can see a Folder 'Programme', but in fact it is a link to 'program files', 'Benutzer' is 'Users'. Switching the language changes those links, but never the 'real' folder, so that path is the correct one. And APG will, as far as I remember, clean the temp dir on exit, but if not, you can use the 'clean disk wizard' of windows (right click on c: - properties - tools).

MfG

You didn't told me notthing new. But in my case it not works correctly for some reason. I didn't have the folder that APG has by default. Maybe I could made something else but that you wrote didn't help me.
