I installed a new SSD as a startup drive, and everything but Photoshop CS6 worked properly. After uninstalling and reinstalling Photoshop CS6 (several times), I continue to get an error message, "Could not open a scratch file because the disk is not available." That is followed by another, "Could not initialize Photoshop because the disk is not available." Has anyone else experienced this problem? Solutions?
This is a permissions issue. What OS?
OS X Mavericks. I was able to resolve it after a chat discussion with Adobe support. It is indeed a permissions issue apparently, but not one that can be resolved with Disk Utility. I was able to change to another scratch disk by holding down "Command + Option" as I launched Photoshop, and that did it. Still can't use the previous disk as a scratch, though, even though permissions have been repaired.
