FSX-SE stored hard disk space during flight

Recommended Posts

Hi pilots,


yesterday I had a strange problem during my flight with FSX-SE (PMDG NGX, enroute).


Normally I have free disk space on my FSX-SE hard disk of 5-10GB. During flight I got a message that I run into low hard disk space. Then I observed, that the free space was decreasing by a rate of 100-250KB per second.

I checked Steam and other programs, but no program was downloading anything. On the hard disk are only my FSX-SE.


After restarting the computer I have still no free disk space on it. Currently I am not able to locate the files which stored the space yesterday.


Do you have any idea? Did you observe the same behaviour one time?


Thank you very much!

You sure Windows or your gfx adapter weren't downloading updates in the background?.. and a reboot didn't help. At first I was thinking that FSX was caching data, but of course a reboot should have reset that (I think!).Have you run any anti virus or anti malware programs as a check?

thank you!


I will start another try this evening. But first I need again more space on my hard disk.


Is there any opportunity to identify the last changed files/dirs on it? Maybe this would give me a hint about the problem, when I see the files, which reserved that space.


Best regards
