I like your extended messaging in the geoprocessing window, but in the messaging the following message was present

Temporary data will be created in C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp\ArcGISProTemp66476\s81164d47_6e4e_472e_9c75_5d5d03069b7 

55,942 MB of temporary storage is estimated to be needed. 86,573 MB of storage is currently available.

I could not find any mechanism to change the location of this directory I look in environment variables and in the Project options

May we have a capacity to do this

2nd Update despite performing the change to local directory as above (and restarting program as stated)

When processing a distance allocation process I still got

Hi Paul,

You can set a system environment variable to change the location the distance tools, and other tools that use parallel processing, write.

This is documented in the help that Liz shared above.

This had previously been logged as a bug with technical support, and that bug was closed, guiding users to set the temp directory as a system environment variable that Pro respects: https://support.esri.com/en/bugs/nimbus/QlVHLTAwMDExMjAyOQ==
