I use the webparser for displaying my housedoor camera picture. I want a quick update rate, so set it to 1 second. After setting up on my new PC with Windows 10 I noticed the Windows temp directory getting flooded with webcam pictures. It seem that on Win10 the deletion of old images does not work properly.
So I set a fixed filename. Now everything works fine. The file now is located in the skins directory in my document folder.
But this folder is in a SSD which now is constantly written over and over again with that picture file. I fear, that I wear out my SSD this way. So is there a way to put the file elsewhere? Is Rainmeter also writing temporary files constantly with other skins?
Modern PCs have tons of RAM, why storing temporary info on disk? I considered installing a RAM drive, but I have not found any setting in Rainmeter to move all temporary data into a specific location, eg. that RAM drive. Or is there a better webcam skin which even do not write a file at all?
Thanks for help
Here are my parameters for that webcam skin:
