Scratch Disks
« on: May 10, 2008, 02:31:24 PM »
Photoshop keeps saying the scratch disks are full and won't let me use the paintbrush. This is probably really stupid but what are scratch disks and how do I empty them?

I used to get the error in photoshop when my computer didn't have enough memory to open Photoshop.
How much space is on ur hard drive? and what else do u have open when ur trying to use it?
i may or maynot be right here, so ignore me if i'm not helpful!

I'm actually in the labs cos my computer at home is dead for a while. The same thing has happened on every computer i've logged in to.

hrmm... it may have something to do with the hdd space on those computers...
if your on the old vfx machines, then its probably most likely the the hdd is too full.... :-\
check how much space is left on them?

On this machine it's 65 MB on (C:) and 24 GB on (E:) and those are the drives photoshop is using as the scratch disks. How much space do I need!?
