WSPI-leaks" and WSPR at 4M is like Don Quixote

I found the memory leak deja vue I had that one's before.
 WSPR  save all was checked for a test forgot to uncheck it

C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\WSPR\save
this location is hidden by Windows no easy to find
Microsoft did a good job to hide  data as difficult as possible

2588 files 6.58GB   there they are  each wav is 2.6MB every decode is saved so that will stuff your drive in the end. Only  650MB was left now

the log file containing all decodes can also be found there
This file is not under c:\program files\WSPR\
C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\WSPR\ALL_WSPR.TXT
It has decoded records and logging of TX period  since 2009
still it is only 42MB no problem at all  those TXT files are very efficient in storing data
they take a fraction of space compared to  MDB or XLS files

It is strange that instantly after installing Googledrive 3GB was gone And that I did not see this in the drive mapper
so now the HD is healthy again with 7.47G…
