    Why does Premiere Pro CS5 eat up space on my C drive when it conforms video files?

    KarizmaticMojo

      Hey everyone. I have Premiere Pro CS5 with the latest update installed. I am running Windows 7 64-bit on a 120GB Corsair SSD drive. I have set my scratch disk video and audio previews to a different hard drive (F: drive). I have three questions:

       

      1. Why does Premiere eat up space on my C drive whenever it conforms the video files I import into my project?

       

      2. Where on my C drive can I find the folder that holds all these conformed video files that are taking up space on my C drive?

       

      3. How do I prevent Premiere from eating up space on my hard drive when it conforms the video files I import into my project? Is there some way to move whatever folder is eating up space on my hard drive when Premiere conforms the video files and tell Premiere to conform the video files on another hard disk so I don't lose precious space on my C drive?

       

      Okay, that's four questions but, can some please help me on this? Thanks.

       

      Okay, that's five questions.
