Hi, I had recently received the bellow error message while trying to crop a very small document with only one layer. (640x960 @ 110 ppi)
I then proceeded to create a seperate partition to allow a clear scratch space. After time I would be able to clear the partition itself, if it were to become full, and not have to worry about having the scratch on my main partition.
I did this, assigned the partition as the scratch disk, and restarted Photoshop.
Tried to crop the same image--I received the same error message, although I am possitive that the new scratch disk is clear. Surely the small, single layer, .png crop action would not take up 5GB.
Help! I cannot do anything.
You only have one scratch disk enabled, and it only has 4.2 Gig available.
Yes, your scratch disk is going to fill up quickly.
And if you get this while cropping, it probably means that you forgot some settings in the crop tool options, and are trying to resample your image to create a huge document.
Do yourself a favor - spend a hundred or so bucks on a new SSD (I suggest OCZ Vector 128GB) and save yourself a ton of headaches. Trying to run a modern system with 25 gigabytes of total free space is akin to putting a gallon of gas at a time in a Corvette.
