Dear Corey,

Thanks for the response.

I'm saving to an external 1 terabyte hard drive which is backed up by a 
second one.

I ran across a listserv with some info that I used.  I reduced the global 
media cache (new in SF 10- not sure what it does yet) from 192 or something 
to zero.  I'm also "saving as" rather than "saving" and have had no problems 
with long files broken into 30-35 minute files- today.

There is a recent SF 10 manual published.  It's not on Amazon yet but I'm 
sending for one.
