    Was 600 GB of hard drive consumed by DataBlending?

      Hi guys !

      Probably somebody faced similar issue.

      Shortly speaking - some actions or processes on TableauServer filled up ~600 G of hard drive during few hours.

      I have suspicious that it happened when one of business user worked with data blending in Tableau Desktop using connection to datasource on TS.

      Is it known behavior that data blending is a space consuming process??

      Or any other idea what  filled up ~600 gb in few hours ?

      Background - it happened for the first time and there are no NEW heavy or huge extracts. I have huge ones , but there were no issues wth thier refreshment early.

       

      Please advise.

       

      Tableau Server 9.0.4(I know i need to upgrade it :-)).
