Hi Kari,

I noticed you said that others are not having this issue, I just checked, and I had 57 GB of .wav files, which are now deleted...

Can someone direct me to the control which turns off, and on, the saving of .wav files? I looked all over and can not seem to locate it.

Running 2.3.0 GA release.

...that AGAIN my C: drive was nearly 2/3 full ! ... found 646,693
files worth over 203 GB of data in the user... wsjtx - "save"
directory... from late Sept. of 2020 till present- INCLUDING the NEW
Version v2.3.0 GA !!!
I wonder why no-one else has reported this problem...

So apparently, the NONE button under save, does... nothing, just dead.
Only that for everyone else this button (?) seems to do exactly what
is advertises.

That was after I FOUND IT! What I mean is, that the
user...wsjtx...save file was set to HIDDEN, but certainly NOT BY ME!
And certainly not by WSJT-X. Why on earth would WSJT-X try to do
something like that?

It's an Open Source project. Just try to find a piece of code doing
'change a directory to hidden' in there.

Anyway, the WSJTX issue here in that since it is set to off, WHY IS
Obviously you have some problem with your computer not related to WSJT-X .

May I suggest that while you are trying to find out what's wrong with
your computer, you schedule a task to delete unneeded .wav files using
Windows Backgound Task facility
