That might be the photoshop scratch disk file.
How big are the documents your creating?
Does photoshop exit without crashing?
Did you clear the temp files folder?
no it crashes every time i encounter this problem...and i cleared the temp files too...
A measly 32 GB of HD space is not nearly enough to run both the Photoshop scratch disk, plus the swap files of the OS, plus any other applications that may be running, plus other stuff that will hog disk space like web browser caches, etc.
My primary scratch disk is a dedicated 250 GB physically separate internal hard drive, and I have some 400 GB free on my boot drive.
You need a lot more HD space.
The scratch disk is created the instant you open an image file or create a new document. Figure on 100 times or more the size of your largest file multiplied by the number of files you keep open.

Please note that I edited my last post, where I had erroneously typed RAM instead of HD space.
