What versions of photoshop and windows do you have?
Are they 64 bit versions?
Without 64 bit version you cannot address 12GB RAM.
Please tell us.
Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit, Photoshop CC.
This problem hasn't shown up on this system before switching to an SSD. The system is configured similarly to that which I ran using a HDD.
I'm using Samsung's utility, configured for max reliability.
Francesco, hello, last time I checked, Photoshop needs a page file to work.
Modern OSes need a page/swap file to work!
If someone tells you to disable the swap/paging file - run away, because they don't know what they are talking about.
Chris, I read that link and decided it was plain wrong. However Samsung "Magician" (now there's a title that is going to fill one with confidence!) sets the page file as indicated in my post, in either max reliability or max performance. Under these circumstances, would you ignore their settings and run the paging file as I have in the past, using MS recommendations, or will allowing the page file to reside on a different drive at full settings?
Of course, I could go out and buy more RAM!
When the warnings appeared, the system was using close to 11G. Photoshop was not busy but minimized and scratch was practically empty.
It sounds like Samsung's software has a problem - 1024Meg max means you only have 1 Gig of swapspace!
Max swapspace should usually be about twice the installed RAM.
Does having page file on other than C drive qualify?
Yes, as long as the system has a paging file.
PS Keep up the good work.
