High CPU with 'Delete Old Recordings' enabled.

Win 20H2 , I7 CPU. PlayItLIve uses ~1% CPU.  PlayIt Recorder was using ~15%, even when idling between recordings.

We record to a UNC path. We don't map drives for security reasons.  This works fine (low CPU) unless you enable;

File>Settings>Delete Old Recordings.

Enabling it instantly causes CPU to jump from ~2% to 15% constantly, irrespective of the values entered.  Can you please review code to more efficiently (less frequently?) check drive space & recording dates?.  Thanks for the great software!

Perfect.  Build 540 working well now with 'Delete Old Recordings' enabled. Thank you for the super-fast fix Jason.

Hi Aaron,

This appears to have been caused by PlayIt Recorder unable to check the disk space levels of the UNC path. Please try this new version: - I've removed this disk space check for UNC paths and, as a result, it will not be able to clean up if disk space is low on the UNC path. Old recordings will still be deleted.
