    Could not use the tool because of disk error Photoshop CC 2017

      I hope I posted this right. I keep getting this error, "Could not use the tool because of disk error" in Photoshop CC 2017 while in select and mask mode when I try to use the brush. I've read at a couple places that suggested it was a hardware issue rather than a PS issue, but this is LITERALLY a brand new computer. I've had it for 2 weeks if that. Here are the specs:


      15.6" FHD IPS Matte Screen

      Intel® Kabylake i7-7700HQ

      NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti [4GB] w/Optimus™ Technology

      Up to 8GB RAM

      1TB Hard Drive

      Windows 10 64bit


      My question is how do I fix this or is this really a hard-drive problem and needs to to be sent back?

      Thank you for any help!
