It but means you need to free more space from the partitions y’all’re using as scratch disks (by default the same partition on which the operating system is installed is used as primary scratch disk). Delete the files y’all don’t demand, back upward large files you rarely always need on external difficult drives if y’all can. One time you lot can launch Photoshop, become to
Edit->Preferences->Scratch Disks
and add more than one if yous tin can by checking the related box. Scratch disks are basically partitions used by Photoshop as temporary storage during the editing.

level ane

How much room do you have on your drive?

level 1

Completely close downward your computer and restart. That should clear the temporary caches plenty to let you open photoshop. Once open, you need to ready up a new scratch disk before continuing to edit.

The message is saying that your disk is full (or at least too full for yous to be able to work). Free up some space, and so endeavour again…

If yous have more than one drive, so it is specifically stating that the disk(s) used every bit scratch disk is the ones that are full. Past default this would be your system drive if you haven’t changed information technology.
