Is there one complete copy in the PREL original file, another copy in the Auto-Save file, and now would there be another copy in the Project Assets/Expert file?  My main computer is always going up in C: Drive!  Ex: 216GB of 1.81TB.  Think it was about 221GB when the C: Drive just goes red!!!  Then the BIG CRASH WOULD COME!  Been there, do not want to do that again!!!  Please help, JJ  Thank you:(    🙂 ...i love Premiere Elements!  This is what i love to do!!!

Your project file does not copy anything... it is like the index in a book that points you to a page, but does not have that information copied under the index listing

 

What DOES happen is that many temporary files are created as you work, and those temporary files can expand to take up a LOT of space

 

I have 3 drives in my home built computer... system & temporary & data

Every time I start a project I set my project and work files to F:\Adobe
(F is MY drive for temporary files, your drive letter may be different)
I work in EXPERT view to be able to control every aspect of my project
Click EDIT and then PREFERENCES and then SCRATCHDISKS
I set every one of the options to F:\Adobe
PrE then automatically creates sub-folders as needed
F:\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Elements Audio Previews
F:\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Elements Captured Audio
F:\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Elements Captured Video
F:\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Elements Video Previews
F:\Adobe\Encoded Files
F:\Adobe\Layouts
F:\Adobe\Peak Files

 

When I complete a project I delete or empty all of the temporary file locations
