Can you explain what an SD disk is please?
Is it an integral drive, or external?
If external, what is the interface?
Hello, Photoshop will only accept a disk that the system sees as non-removable as a valid scratch disk, to avoid a catastrophic eject.
An SD card is removable media...
Plus, I doubt that such a card would have enough bandwidth, and be "strong" enough to sustain the very large read/writes of a Ps Scratch file... Time to make room on your HDD...
Yeah, that does make sense (to use only non-removable drives). However, there's a lot of people online with screen grabs showing that they use the option to use a SD or USB thumb as a scratch disk. Most of them are using earlier versions of Windows of PSD though.
The computer is brand new. There is nothing that I can erase. It's small. I only have like 8GB of room. But I have a 900MB file and my 4GB of RAM isn't enough to open it. I've tried a couple different memory shifts etc. but nothing that I've tried has gotten me that amount. I can only seem to get to like 400MB cache on my C:\ drive.
My SD card has 32GB so I thought that might be a valid option to use Photoshop on this computer.
I would think 32GB/4GB would be enough but I'm not sure if that's the case. There are a number of smart objects in the file but it's not massive production art. Frankly a bit surprised I can't find a way to open it.
