    Finding stored information


    Hello All
    I am trying to find out where Ubuntu stores information from a DVD when you are making copies of it. This way it will be possible for me to delete the files after it is done copying them. I notice when I make copies that there is less hard drive space after I make a copy. I'm guessing that Ubuntu doesn't delete the information like windows does.
    Thank you for your help with this.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    This is usally configurable, but one common place is /tmp, or if you have a tmp directory in your home directory, it may be there, ~/tmp. Since I don't know which program you are using to make copies, I can't say more. Some may not make a local copy. Others may.

    Hello Rubberman
    Sorry for not posting the complete operating system.
    I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with all the updates installed.
    Hope this helps you so you can help me.

    Again, it usually depends upon the copying application, and in many cases that is user configurable. What application are you using to copy DVDs?
