Disk Space

New Installation Upgrade
  • The disk where you are installing Spectrum Technology Platform must have 4 GB of free space to install all modules, less if installing fewer modules.
  • The disk where the temp folder is located must have at least 10 GB of free space for the installation to extract the files it needs. You may need more depending on the options you are installing. If necessary, modify the TEMP environment variable to point to a location with enough space.
  • Upgrade memory requirement - You must have a minimum of 8GB of RAM to run the upgrade to release 2023.1.
  • The disk where you are installing Spectrum Technology Platform must have free disk space equal to three times the size of your current installation. To determine the size of your current installation, look at the size of the folder where you installed Spectrum Technology Platform.
  • If you are adding modules as part of your upgrade, you will need 3 GB to install all modules, less if installing fewer modules.
  • The disk where the temp folder is located must have 10 GB of free space plus four times the size of your current installation. For example, if your current installation is 5 GB, you would need 30 GB of temp space: (4 x 5 GB) + 10 GB = 30 GB. If necessary, modify the TEMP environment variable to point to a location with enough space.
Note: If you are installing a module that uses a reference database, such as a postal database, geocoding database, or data normalization tables, you will need space for this data. The total disk space varies, depending on which modules and databases you are installing.
