What are scratch files?

INTEGRATED’s CAE tools create two temporary scratch files during analysis. Prior to performing an analysis you can check the scratch file size by using the command ProblemSize under the Element submenu. This command displays the size of each scratch files in Mega bytes. The size is related to the number of elements in your model.

The location of these scratch files can be set (for example to different disk drives). In version 6.0 and older Choose File>DirectorySetup to set directories for the databases, and scratch files. In version 6.1 and newer choose Utilities>Settings then choose Files in the Application Objects Tab. From there you will be able to change the location.
