Data Storage Area?

Recommended Posts

When creating an image file to disk, ImgBurn says in the bottom of the main interface windows "Writing Image...".  Sometimes, this message disappears and is very briefly replaced by another message.  However, it appears so swiftly, I don't know what it says.  I believe I've made out the phrase "Data Storage Area," but I can't be sure.

 

 

What exactly does this output message say and what does it mean?  :unsure:

 

 

Thanks!

Isn’t it just preallocating the destination file disc space?

 

It sounds like that’s the message you’re seeing flash up in the status bar.

It apparently says "Allocating File Data Storage Area."  I had multiple reads, writes, etc. being performed during a Build and the system had become so slow I was able to see the message this time.  :)

Most likely it's just imgburn telling the drive something like 'hey, I'll need x amount of space on that blank disc. Reserve it if there's enough, then do your thing and let me know when you're done'.
