The Z:\receiving\temp folder is created automatically by Tellicast.
Your ....\receiving on the C: drive below T-Systems\BusinessTV-IP\ is
a "left over" before you configured the RAMdisk and should contain old
data (check the file dates).
There should not be a recycled folder on RAMdisk. Some Windows process
must have deleted something on Z:, causing the recycled to be created.
After a system reboot it should be gone !
Only last week when we discussed the RAMdisk with Eumetsat a new
"insight" came up.
There is no doubt, the 0.FSY file should be on RAMdisk !
And the article on the RAMdisk does tell you that temp_directory is
specified as =Z:\receiving/temp
But when receiving the updates your RAMdisk should hold the larger
0.FSY and the temporary 25 Mb update file !
As David said after the file is received completely it has to be moved
to the received folder.
A move to a different drive is the same as a "copy and if successful
then delete" in Windows !
Placing the receiving/temp on the same drive as the received folder
simply turns a move command into a "rename path" and causes less IO.
As the RAMdisk is very fast I don't think this does worsen performance
, but you never know.
And to complicate this matter even more, we don't really need the
receiving/temp folder. Tellicast can write directly to the received
folder. The temp folder is only to be used if you have a image decoder
that tries to access the received file before it is completed. David's
MDM does wait for the file being completed.
At this moment (but we are in "Beta-phase" !) we can recommend to
disable the temp_directory line(s) in your ini files.
Please note that in TC244 this entry may be called tmp_directory
