    "The scratch disks are write protected or unavailable" on NEW project on PrE

    jonbale Level 1

      I am running PrE 10 on Windows 7 64 bit.  My computer has two internal hard drives (C and E).  I want to put my projects and all scratch disks on E, the non-OS drive.  When I try to create a NEW project and designate a directory I have already created on E, I get the following message from PrE 10:

      "The scratch disks are write protected or unavailable..."

      The program won't let me use E.  However, when I check the drive, it HAS created a .PRV directory in the Preview Files directory and a .prel file in the Encoded Files directory.  So it is actually able to write to drive E.


      What gives?  Thanks.
