temp file

As i add books, the temp file for calibre becomes over 10GB which fills my C drive. I installed calibre on G drive. Is it possible for the temp file to reside on the G drive where calibre is installed? My ebooks i wish to add are 254GB the current calibre library is 335GB.

There is an environment variable that might do what you want. I am in the process of trying this myself, so I don't have first hand experience to say for sure, but here it is:

CALIBRE_TEMP_DIR - sets the temporary directory used by calibre.

You can read more about what this does and how to set it here:

Hope that helps!

@ms233 - Uh-uh, the environment variable to relocate calibre's temporary files is CALIBRE_TEMP_DIR. The CALIBRE_CONFIG_DIRECTORY variable is for relocating calibre's configuration folder, which is permanent data.

And yes they work as advertised - for me at least
