Unable to save profiler results due to insufficient memory

Postby mihaichiritescu » Thu Jun 21, 2012 6:04 pm


This is my first time with ANTS memory profiler and I ran into an issue that was really annoying. I made about 7-8 snapshots and these snapshots would consume more than 20GB. The problem was that I did not have 20GB on my C: drive but I had more than enough on my D: drive where ANTS memory profiler was installed. After doing the snapshots I tried to save the profiler results but I ran into an error saying that I do not have enough space on the C: drive - I had no workaround for this so I lost the snapshots. I think it was trying to save some logs/results into C:\\Users\\PChiritescu\\AppData\\Local\\Red Gate\\ANTS Memory Profiler 7.

Question: is there anyway I can change the results/logs folder so it would save everything on my D drive instead of C?

Thanks for your help!

You can edit the RGTEMP environment variable.
