I have some very serious problems when i am working in a big part with maximum features.


I get a message saying that:

The application has used up the maximum allowable disk space (1200 MB)

 

The second problem is:
The space in C: keeps increasing. I dont know how the space in C: increased even after having the ipt file in D:

 

Please advice....!!!

Hi!

 

Inventor uses  disk space as memory. Try to save often, and ofcourse, get more space in C:

I just say yes to that prompt.  I have not seen any bad effects from doing so. 

 

Inventor makes a temporary file to store the information required for the UNDO button.  If you do enough complicated work, IV fills up the temporary file and asks if it can make the file bigger.  I believe that IV deletes the file on shutdown, but I have never checked.  As long as you have more room on your c: drive, it will not cause a problem.
