Windows 7: Audacity hogs disk space on Windows 7

Audacity hogs disk space on Windows 7

I began using Audacity to convert my Dad's old lp's and cassettes to cd's.
But unfortuantly, after two conversions I found Audacity was taking up 21.2 gigs of disk space in {C:\Users\Sam\AppData\Local\Temp\audacity_temp}?! An obsence amount of space for the program's nature (small music files). These files were also extremly fragmented, so instead of defraging I just choose to get rid of audacity altogether.
I don't know if this is isolated to Seven or not, but a google search reaped no results on this issue for other operating systems.
After removing Audacity my HDD performance has gone 14% and booting is much faster.
