I use Adobe Photoshop for work and when I started it up I got a message saying the scratch disks are full. Is there a way to fix this error so I could get my work done?

Photospace needs a working space to store temporary project files. If Photoshop, doesn’t have enough RAM to store something temporarily, it uses hard drive space as a temporary virtual memory holder. This hard drive space is referred to as a scratch disk.

Photoshop leave fairly large temporary files (temp files) if you’re working with large elements so if both the RAM and the scratch disk become full with temp files, you will get a “Scratch Disk is full” error.

  1. Best practice is to keep your system drive(s) as empty as possible, using additional drives (external especially in the case of portable computers) for storage or,
  2. You can Switch Scratch Disks by Hold down Command + Option (Mac) or Ctrl + Alt (PC) on Windows when you launch Photoshop. It will give you a dialog to select a different Scratch Disk with more space on it.
