Sub_title: where is the temporary file?

Hi! When I want to print, the available memory always goes down by Megabytes! This is probably because the file is stored temporarily somewhere when/before it's being sent to the printer. When using a system with just a few MB of memory, this can go down to nothing. So where is that temporary file?
I want to move the folder containing that file to a HDD (where i do not care about the size) and then just create a symbolic link to that folder where it's supposed to be.
For this to be done i need to know where to find this temp.-printer-file.
Thx for answers!

Then go to the folder /etc/cups and open the file cupsd.conf in a text editor. Add these lines at the top:
PreserveJobHistory No
PreserveJobFiles No
