    Photoshop Pros: I need your help

    I was just going to use Photoshop but the program loaded and closed by itself. I tried this several times with no such luck. I un-installed then re-installed and got a message before the usual load up that read, "You currently have Adobe Photoshop's primary Scratch and Windows' primary paging file on the same volume, which can result in reduced performance. It is recommended that you set Adobe Photoshop's primary Scratch volume to be on a different volume, preferably on a different physical drive."

    Did a lil google search, and apparently, this is a known problem:

    The instructions are useless because I can't even get Photoshop to stay open.

    Has anyone experienced this before?

    All feedback's appreciated.

    Big thanks!!

    What version of Photoshop, and how much hard drive space do you have left?

    Try holding CTRL + ALT + SHIFT when starting Photoshop....

    EDIT: I should throw in a disclaimer - this will reset everything to defaults in Photoshop.

    I've seen that error before but it's never kept me out of PS. Good advice though.

    Cool!

    Too bad I don't get to know till I get home. I'll keep you posted.

    Thanks guys!

    BTW, this doesn't have to do with memory (RAM), does it? I never had problems with 256, and now that I'm at 640, it should be more than fine...

    Try uninstalling, then custom reinstalling into a different directory name...
