No errors whatsoever.
Keep a eye on it.
Could be a isolated read error.
Could be a windows permission error.
Have you set up a scratch disk yet.
Hey I have the exact same problem, my PC is also new only 4 weeks old!!!
mine is a the lenovo 910, i7 7th gen with 16gis of RAM.
This is killing me!!!
So I haven't found a fix but I'm making progress I closed all other programs running. Then I went into prefrences in photoshop. Then go to performance. Then I made the ram avilable to 85% and cropped my photo down to only what I needed. The error changed to a program error but didn't crash. It must be an issue with photoshop. My last project I used a ton of select and masking. If any one else has any progress please post
I am runnin a surface pro 4 256g hd 8gb ram windows 10
I have a Surface Book with i7 2.6Ghz, Windows 10 Pro, 16Gb Ram, 500Gb SSD with hardly anything on it.
Just booted PS and it came up with the error, "Could not load default patterns because of a disk error." No code referenced.
It did eventually load but on closing, I noted that my CC desktop app didn't show my avatar and most apps said "Start Trial" but a couple had "Open" buttons.
I signed out, signed in again. Closed out of PS and restarted with no issue.
I have no idea if this helps or not but I have had issues installing updates to CC app and had to do a few workarounds to get it updated. Same with the update to Acrobat DC.
Ever since, there have been hiccups.
Things are working slowly, but fine on the iMac with the PC versions often buggy.
Okay i had the same problem... wondering what a scratch disk was after doing some research i started to follow a video and found my way to preformance and one of the setting was set for photoshop to use 79% (of ram? or whatever) changed it to 80 now the mask mode i have no problem!! Hope this helps =]
