Hi everyone:

I just started a few days ago and chose as projects SETI@Home and MilkyWay. Other than the initial download, do either of these store anything else on my hard drive?

Thank you in advance!

Other than the files needed to run BOINC and the projects, the simple answer is no.

"workfiles" for each project are downloaded but are removed when they are completed and returned.
