temporary storage for dng export

hi,
I have been waiting DNG export funtion in Lightroom Desktop cloud version and it is available finally.
However, when I try to export 200 photos(40MB each), i see disk shortage error and found there are large temporary file, around 60GB under ¥appdata¥local¥temp location.
I want to know whether this is known issue and some workaround is exist, or only on my environment.
Does anyone have an idea?

Workarounds you can try: 

1. Free up disk space on your desktop if possible.
2. If not, Export in smaller batches

If the temporary files in that location persist after a restart of your computer, you can clean them out to make space.

thank you. my pc does not have much storage and can't do 1. but 2 is works for me. and those temp file will be cleaned up automatically when I restart the application.
however, I usually export more than 300 photos at one time, I am wondering if i have any solution.
I did the same on my android device before this windows version, it was working perfectly even 800 photos. but there are another issue after exporting files and i want to use desktoo cloud version if possible.

This isn't being caused by Lightroom Export. What are the names of the large files in the Temp folder. I suggest closing all apps and deleting the files in the Temp folder. You may not be able to delete all of them, but the remaining files shouldn't be very large.

Thank you. the filename is cr_sdk_[numbers].tmp . this is automatically created when i start DNG export, and removed automatically when i close the applicafion.
Problem is the size of file. it is 10 times larger than exported DNG file.

I just did an Export to DNG file format using LR Desktop 3.2 and it leaves a 63 KB cr_sdk temp file for each export file and a bunch of NiDevelopCoreUI_ETCropB PNG files. What version of LR Desktop are you using?
