I have an issue with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5. I recently tried to export to h264. I made sure the export was rendering to an external hard drive. The render got stuck at 100%. Then it started to use up my laptop hard disk until it got all the way to zero. I can't find these mysterious files anywhere on my hard drive to delete. I had close to 30gb of space. Now its gone. I've tried looking everywhere. I looked in media cache files. That wasn't it. Please can someone point me in the right direction.

Thanks

You simply must have between 10 and 20% free space on ALL hard drives. NLEs write temporary files during encodes, and will write those to any drive where space exists prior to creating the finished file. It certainly sounds as if you're cutting hard drive space way too close to the upper limits, thus causing the issues you're experiencing.

Thanks for the reply. Do you know where any of these temporary files might be located. I tried looking everywhere. I can't find them.

Windows or Mac?

If Windows, right-click a drive, click on "Properties", click on "Disk Cleanup". Take a look at the various areas of cleanup and decide which ones you wish to delete.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2015.02 (as of 6/2016)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.
