You have already asked several questions here and should know what information you should provide so that you can be helped.
In this case: MediaInfo, for example.
It would also be advisable to list your hardware, driver, software and camera equipment in your signature - so that not every thread goes into a question and answer game.

The problem is free space on disk C. I have chosen different disk for the output file but during rendering free space on disk C getting smaller and finally rendering process stops. How to ovoid this situation?

Go to File - Properties and change your "Pre-rendered files folder" off of drive C.

Go to Options - Preferences - General tab and change your "Temporary files folder" off of drive C.

I did it but the result is the same

The C drive has a free space of 10-20 GB. After 1-2 hours of rendering, there is no free space and the process stops. I choose a different drive for the temporary file and for an output file. This does not change anything - after 1-2 hours of rendering, there is no free space and the process stops.

How big is the file to be rendered? A render itself can easily be 10gb and Vegas presumably needs 2x that space for copying/moving files.

Is the output file now heading to an external drive with adequate storage?

Yes. Output file goes to big internal hard drive with 2.4 GB free space.

Do you now how to estimate output file size before rendering?

File is big (different files) and 20 GB free space on C: is not enough. Question is: how can I manage it? When I do the same job with Magix Movie Edit Pro Premium nothing happens like this.

If you have to worry about available space on your disk(s), you’re in the wrong vocation or avocation.

I have a problem with Vegas Pro when do rendering. Whatever I do with temporary and output files location it does matter for the program. Vegas Pro 17 always create temp files on disc C. 20 GB free space is not enough. What I have to do in this situation?

I think you need large additional hard drives. I never save anything to my C: drive. Everything gets saved to other SSD's or mechanical drives.

And if that is your C: drive, you are in trouble. Not enough space.

Click through the individual forms of the preferences and the project settings, and wherever you see the selection option, choose your personal target folder.
And then, of course, also specify a place on your desired hard drive for the render target.

Back to basics then. Can you access your D: via Windows/files explorer, create your media & temp directories and then select them using VP as described by 'Walter'.

As per advice from both walter-i and diverG ... but at the 'Temporary files folder' field, use the Browse button which will allow you to drill down to the drive and folder to where you want to direct all that ancillary data.

Dell Alienware Aurora 11

Windows 10 Home

10th Gen Intel i9 10900KF - 10 cores (20 threads) - 3.7 to 5.3 GHz

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8GB GDDR6 - liquid cooled

64GB RAM - Dual Channel HyperX FURY DDR4 XMP at 3200MHz

It is what I did - created folder "Temporary files folder" on D look at my picture please. And no changes Vegas Pro still uses C for temporary files.

Have you also checked the other windows of the preferences and the project settings as I advised you?

I did it but the result is the same. Vegas Pro creates something on C drive and the program stops when there is no space on C drive.
