    Recovery files only written on boot drive

      I've seen this discussed elsewhere, but not found any solutions or explanations as for most recovery seems to work fine regardless of where the scratch drive is set.  For me it only seems to work if the scratch is set as boot drive, C:.


      I became aware of this after recently adding an SSD to my system and accordingly setting the scratch disk to one of the other larger drives.  After a photoshop crash there was no recovery - surprising as it had worked flawlessly in the past.  I did a test, switching the scratch location among a few drives and seeing where the recovery files were written - the answer was C: drive.  In any other location the PSAutoRecover folder was created, but no files ever appear there.


      Does anyone have any ideas as to why this might be?
