I have a SSD as my main drive, but when doing batch encoding, Handbrake (vidcoder) copies a lot of data (sometimes thousands) of files over to the TEMP folder.

is there anyway of setting this folder to another, or even stopping it???


Reason i ask is, SSD's will not last that long when doing this kind of thing..... so many temp files being written over and over again.

It's not an option that I have on the HandBrake API. You can make it a bit better by going to Options -> Advanced -> Scanning -> Number of picture previews to scan. If you choose a smaller number you won't get as many files written to the temp folder.
