Default Is there a way to... temp files...

Is there a way to get just the temp files written to another drive / directory ?

I've gotten all the data and temp files to go to another drive using -wB:
when trial factoring, the program Prime95.exe remains on the hard drive.

I want just the temp file, for ECM, to be written to a different drive / directory.

Using Prime95.exe version 23.8.1

Use the -W command line argument to point to a different working directory and then in prime.ini set full pathnames for these parameters:


If that doesn't work, I don't see another workaround
