Hi. New to the community and MCEBuddy, and so far I’m very encouraged by the quick responses to questions, and knowledge sharing in this group.
I tried searching for my question, but couldn’t find any information on this. My question is regarding the “Copying source file to working directory” step. Is there a way to eliminate this step completely to speed up conversions? My files to be processed are on an external drive E: and so I created an E:\Temp folder and designated that folder in the expert settings for the conversion task hoping to get rid of the copying source file step or at least make it quicker. The thinking here was that maybe it was slower when copying from E: to C:. Well, that not only didn’t work, but it made that step take even longer.
Can someone who is more familiar with what is happening under the hood help me understand what is going on, and what is the best practice for this step and the temp folder. Thanks!
