I have InDesign installed on an SSD with an HDD for data. My Windows 8 page file is on my HDD. I've changed the document recovery folder in InDesign to the HDD, but whenever I try to export a complex indd to make a print PDF it fills my SSD and crashes. I do NOT want InDesign constantly writing to my SSD, but I can't seem to find an option to move the scratch disk location. Help?
There are two different discussions entwined, but one of them involves a small ssd and moving the user profile. ID uses the temp file in your user profile for scratch and as far as I know you cannot specify a new location for that the same way you can for recovery. The usual method of changing the environment variable does not work.
