Newby. Ideal tmp and swap location.
Just installed GIMP and super stoked to use this program.

Going through all of the preferences I noticed there is the option to select a temporary file location and swap folder. I understand it's never good to take up space and write in the same hard disk as your OS.

:exclamation:Are the default locations for tmp files and swap folder for the best or should they be located elsewhere? I, as well as many others out there have multiple hard drives and I don't mind designating these files to another disk as long as it keeps everything running smoothly.

Thanks! Appreciate any advice and tips.
