Question: Disk partition and memory


I'm using Maple on a linux partition and for some time now I can't really use it anymore. For example, when I open a help window, I can't scroll through the content, and scrolling gets stuck if an image needs to be displayed. I think my partition is too full and does not have enough free space left. Doesn't Maple create a temporary file that is too big for the space available?  But I have another partition that is not in the same format as the linux partition but is nevertheless readable and writable. Is it possible, if the problem is a temporary file, that this file is written to this other partition to avoid this storage problem?
Or could it be due to a memory problem (RAM?) that did not occur before?
