SAS Temporary Files

posted Feb 5, 2020, 12:50 PM by Danny Xu

To free up space on the C: drive and speed up SAS using NVME drive, Login in as admin and edit the following file:

 C:\Program Files\SASHome9.4\SASFoundation\9.4\nls\en\sasv9.cfg

 On line #175, change the following

 -WORK "!TEMP\SAS Temporary Files"


 -WORK "D:\SAS Temporary Files"

 This will switch the work area from the C: to D: drive.

 Of course, whomever makes the edit should make a back-up of the file before making any changes.
