I am running 64Gb ssd:s in my rigs.
Around three weeks ago i reinstalled one of them with Win 10.
I have been running ETH since that and now i am down at 2Gb disk space. I have been trying to find all old DAG files but cant find them anywhere. First time i use Win 10.

I am running Claymores miner, anyone know how to locate the old DAG:s ?
My biggest folder on the drive is the Windows folder, it is around 16Gb.
The second largest folder on the drive is windows/winsxs, that one is around 6Gb
The location where i thought i would find them (users/user/appdata/local/ethdcrminer64) is only 3Gb and containing two dag files.

It feels like a big chunk of space is missing and i cant find out where it is.
I have activated visibility on hidden files and so on.

Anyone got a tip ?

Rigg one (almost three weeks old)



Rig two (around 1.5 weeks old)



Both rigs are identical except six cards in rig 1 and two cards in rig 2.

16Gb virtual memory set on both rigs.

What is eating drive space in rig 1 !?

If Program Files is 40 GB and Windows is 16 GB, there's 56 GB already out of 60. Rig 2 has a similarly sized Program Files.
The issue appears to be in Program Files on both rigs.

If that is for mining only, the total program files and the windows folder should be lower than 8GB. The OP has to remove the Claymore miner log fiies regularly. They are quite big.

Not sure what is going on, the files on both eigs are pretty much the same size. But i have like 15Gb more free space on the more fresh built rig.

These are mining only rigs, exactly the same hw in both builds.
I am dumping the log files regulary but they are only a couple of hundred megabytes every week.
I really cant find out what is chewing up the space

Do a google search on how to disable system hibernation, if you have not disabled it already.  Windows creates a file as large as your system RAM.  For example, if you have 16GB of RAM, windows creates a 16GB hibernation file somewhere in the directory structure.

Upgrade to the latest miner. The dag files are generated directly in the gpu mem. No need to store on the disk anymore.

@dev can you post the link of the latest miner URL. it would be helpful as i had been searching for a while but all i got is a bit old compiled one .

If you use the Claymore miner, the DAG files are generated in the GPU itself. So there is no disk space usage.
