Thanks Neil, I'll keep an eye on the save folder.

FWIW .. it will always create a .wav file each decode cycle to enable any debugging, but will always erase it.   HOWEVER ... if you close the program in the middle of a decode cycle, that file WILL NOT be deleted.    That is why under the FILE menu there is a selection to DELETE all files in the save directory.     The developers advise to use that at least once a month (or more often if necessary) to clear out that directory.

It appears to be working now. I had to go in and manually erase the existing files. Then when I started WSJTX with no wav files it deletes the new file after each receive period.  Should have tried that before posting.

Hey Walter,

Thanks but that is what I have done and they are still being saved. At least there is apparently a limit of 2611 files because the oldest is erased before the new one is saved.

Hey Paul,

 Try clicking on the SAVE then select NONE.

See if that takes care of it for you, as it does for me.

Take care,

How do I turn them off?

I have gone to the SAVE menu and have NONE checked but the wav files continue to pile up in the save directory.
