Hello, how many history states do you have in photoshop/preferences/performance? Try to reduce them to use less disk space.
They are set to 100, I'v reduced them to 50 to see if this helps. I personnaly doubt it, because this morning I had a crash minutes after starting to work. So there were only a dozen of changes.
Also, you have lots of layers, what are the cache and tile settings on the same preference page?
Did you check if all the fonts are ok? Did you get a crash log?
Thx for helping!
- RAM usage set to use up to 82% (11GB)
- History states: 50
- cash levels: 4
- Cash Tile size: 1024k
I have indeed a lot of layers. Designs can become pretty complex with more then 10 layers comps. So I'm geussing at least 1000 individual layers. (All nicely grouped offcource )
If the layer is the whole image then it is like another photo. So if you have a 83mb photo and 100 layers that is now 830mg image.
Also, you need at least 10-20% free space on your hard drive for them to function. Sounds like you are running it to 0%, which can cause an OS crash.
when Photoshop is not started, I have 55gb free diskspace. so roughly 25%. Most layers are text, rectangles or smart objects.
I've been monitoring my scratch disk usage all day now, and I noticed I can work without using a lot of scrathdisk. most of the time, a few GB max, but minutes later photoshop could have taken all diskspace.
In most cases, when scratch disk is full warning appears, I can close my document and restart photoshop, and all the space will be available again. When I close the document, but not restart photoshop, the space doesn't get released.
