I am running Ubuntu 16.04 and Audacity 2.1.2. I would like to split a 180MB mp3 file (that is several hours of audio) into smaller chunks (chapters).
The drive I am working on has about 5GB of free disk space. However, as I import the .mp3 into Audacity, not even half way through according to the progress bar, my computer runs out of disk space, as a result of Audacity creating temporary files.
How much disk space do I need to have? It's really confusing that my disk space leaks at such a pace for a not to particularly huge file.
