Hi I am editing some large PSB's in CS6 but even though my scratch disks are assigned to seperate drives photoshop still seems to be using my startup disk and filling it up very quickly. It is fine in CS5 which is leading me to think that maybe the autosave is saving to my startup disk. Is there anyway to change the location of the autosave? I did a quick search and couldn't find any info on the location of autosaves on Mac os x 10.7.
The OS swapfile is usually on the startup disk, and the more RAM you use, the larger the OS swapfile gets.
Also, some plugins use the startup disk as a scratch disk.
And yes, the autosave goes in one of the OS temporary file locations, which is usually on the startup disk.
Ok so I turned off autosave and Photoshop is still using my startup disk even though I have assigned all other hardrives to scratch and they have Tbytes of free space. My scratch shows it is exceding the ram and then starts draining my startup disk. Is this a bug in CS6 or am I missing something? I will test in CS5 and see if it is the same.
