Please note that this is a WEE bit of a security concern, since you are moving your personal files into the open & out of the protection of your personalfolders... BUT, if you are like me and you have only yourself on your system, and dont care well then LETS do it!!Go to this folder :(your root folder)\Documents and Settings\(your username)\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Here you SHOULD have a folder called CD Burning - This is your temporary folder for CD burning.In windows explorer - move this folder (Using cut & paste) to another local drive. I dont recommend moving this folder to a removable or network drive unlessyou are VERY confident in its connection reliability.
