Camtasia Temp file location?

How do you get Camtasia to record to a different hard drive? Basically, while it is recording, I want it to go onto my secondary hdd. I have 2 hard drives. Camtasia is installed on c: While recording a video, after a while a message pops up and says the recording has stopped because I am low on disk space. So I went into the Camtasia, Tools>Options>Program tab. I've selected my second hard drive for the "Temporary Storage Folder". I tried again and it is still writing the file to the c: So I am guessing that is not where the temp file is changed. How can I change where Camtasia writes the file as it is recording? I've restarted the prog and my computer multiple times, fyi.

I assume you're using Cantasia Recorder to capture the videos; so use Recorder's Tools/Options/Program menu to set the destination directory

In CS 6, the destination folder is in the Program tab in Recorder's Tools -> Options dialog. With CS 7 and CS 8, you'll find it in that same dialog under the General tab.

When I record with Camtasia 8 the temporary file is stored in the C:/ Drive... Which has 9 gigabytes in it -_-. In Camtasia ive changed the temporary storage folder to the D:/ Drive. But it still temporarily records in the C: Drive.. Is there anyway to change that?

Accidental delete of camtasia recorder.

I recorded over 2 hours of software tutorial stuff for work with recorder and accidentally clicked delete instead of save as at the end.  Stupid and totally my fault. Where are the temporary working files kept?  I don't see any in the user temp folder even when I start a new recording.  I have some pretty decent recovery software that may help if I knew where to look.

Help would be much appreciated.
