    Hi @Quezada thank you for your post.
    May I please get a bit more information about the setup you're working with?
    Do you have Data Masker installed on your local machine, an application server or the SQL Server that hosts the database being masked?
    Which machine is running out of HD space?
    Are you running Masking rules, or Insertion rules and generating new data?
    Is the Database in Simple Recovery mode?
    Have you tried altering the batch commit size for the substitution rules?
    Happy to try and help if possible! Thank you very much!

    Hi @Quezada thank you for your reply (and apologies for the delay in my reply).
    Have you had any success with this process now? Has altering the batch size helped at all?
    If you're happy to, you can send me your logs (as output by Data Masker) - chris.unwin@red-gate.com and I'll be happy to take a look for you!
    Thank you very much - kindest regards!
