Does anyone have any suggestions for changing the location of temporary data files?  I have a restricted dataset A where I am legally contracted to store temp files in a certain drive [SAY, X1:\\], but am also using STATA for analyzing some large datasets where the temporary data files STATA processes are too large for X1:\\.  Hence, I'm curious if there's an easy way I could change the location of temporary files to a larger drive (SAY, X2:\\).  Ideally, this would be a set of commands I could place in a do file so that the temp files would go to X1:\\ when I am analyzing dataset A, and go to X2:\\ when I am analyzing dataset ~A.  

Thank you for your time and help!
