Tons of Script Errors and Slow Redraw

I recently setup CS 5.5 with Bridge 4.1.0.54 on a new MacBook Pro.

 

When I launch Bridge I get the following messages:

I'm confident of a few things. First, it's obviously somewhat related to this issue:

Second, it has nothing to do with CFS or Samba shares.

 

Lastly, the error has something to do with the output module script- if I startup without it on, no errors.

 

Currently I have my MBP setup with two drives. A SSD for the system software and a second SATA drive for content. All my system software is on the SSD boot drive, however, my users folder is split between the two. Everything but ~/users/xxx/library is symbolicly linked on the second drive.

 

If you look closely at the thread referenced above, all the errors are the same except for the "could not create" error. In the thread, it lists a specific user, my error lists Volumes/Null/...

 

Here is what I've tried so far:

 

Reset the app

Trashed the prefs

Started up w/o scripts

reinstalled the entire CS 5.5 Suite after Uninstalling and using the cleaner tool

 

To add insult to injury, When the output script is off and bridge does load, it does it painfully slow to the point where it is not usalbe. It is also having a ton of redraw issues.

 

Any advice?

    Not sure, don't use Lion myself yet (still to many problems for me) and also have no experience with SSD.

    However to me it seems related to the library and application split.

     

    I know next to nothing about splitting user library with symbolic links apart from the fact that it takes good knowledge and careful maintenance

     

    Personally I would have both system and application software on the SSD including the user library and have the Bridge cache files and image content located on the second disk. If possible for space even make two partitions on the SSD and assign the second partition as primary scratch disk for PS and the second disk as secondary scratch disk.

     

    There are two files used by Bridge and PS that can grow to huge proportions but both files can be relocated to an other folder or even an other disk.

     

    In Bridge preferences cache tab you can set a new location for the Bridge preview cache files (this is the fastest growing file) and also in Bridge you can select Camera Raw preferences and select a new location for the Raw cache. But the latter is also able to limit its size and if you have set to write Camera Raw Cache to sidecar XMP (the default setting) you can do with a very small amount inhere.

     

     

    And from the list you already have tried I do miss the check and repair permissions.

    Thanks for the reply. Currently, here is how the disks are setup

     

    Seems normal to me, maybe Desktop should also be at the SSD but the other ones should be able to do their work properly. I use custom folders for my images and barely use the pictures folder. However iPhoto, Lightroom and Aperture store their libraries by default in the Pictures folder but they should not effect PS I would think.

     

    Did you try a new user account just for testing to see if Bridge works well in this user account?

     

    And what are the sizes of your disks and how much free space have you left (less then 10 % is almost a certainty to bring you in trouble)

     

    Having a new MBP should be expected to meet the the minimum specs but how much RAM have you installed?

     

    And do you use Lion and did you update to current 7.3 already?
