Increasing MC hard disk space- then lost data

Postby jl12 » 09 Aug 2012

Keeping MC open for a day causes a gradual increase in Hard disk space usage from 34 gig free to zero left after a day.

At this stage when closing and re-opening MC, I get they message that data may be lost,
Data from the last session is lost.

When MC is reopened then 34 gig is once again free.

Is this disk usage to be expected, I didn't have this issue with 7.4

Hello jl12,

Are you using 64 bit version of MultiCharts 8.0. Is it Release build?
Have you increased the amount of instruments/data you are using compared to MC 7.4 ?

Open your regular daily setup and check the folder sizes for Cache and Logs folders in
%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\TS Support\MultiCharts\
or %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\TS Support\MultiCharts64\
You should paste this line in Start --> Run


Return to “MultiCharts”
