Here's where Photoshop's temp files are kept on the Mac: macos - How to recover unsaved PSD file on MacOSX - Super User
~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop <version>/AutoRecover
When you close Photoshop, they are gone.
i guess i was not clear
first file save option -> automacly save recovery information every x minutes is disabled
i 'm talking about scratch disks
i have 2 ssd ( 2 solid state disks )
in the first disk i have sierra and photoshop , lightroom and bridge
the second ssd i use for scratch disk
well in the photoshop cc option in the scratch disk i have selected the second ssd (it's almost empty)
run photoshop cc , and while photoshop was running with finder i gave a lot to the second ssd , there is nothing
Maybe the scratch file is hidden, or is deleted. (On a Mac, an app can delete a file it is using, and it goes away when the app quits; this is very useful because it is certain to be cleaned up).
do you run photoshop under osx ?
i kept photoshop running , the point is that i bought a second ssd only for scratch
and i have used an utility to show me the hidden files
i can't find any file create by photoshop cc 2015 & 2018
can somebody help me?
As I said you might not find them. Why not just monitor free space to see if it is being used up.
may i know if you are a mac user?
i can't believe that nobody knows where does it store the scratch disk on osx
the point again is thay i spent money for this new ssd
maybe an adobe team developer could answer

You can see the hidden files on your ssd by using Text Edit, clicking File>Open then navigate to the ssd and press Shift+Command+.
after a few seconds all the hidden files should appear.
Hopefully somewhere is a Photoshop Temp file with a bunch of numbers after it like
Did you open the TemporaryItems folder?
I forgot to add you need to have photoshop running when you look for it Scratch Disk file.
When you quit photoshop, the Scratch Disk file gets deleted.
i can not open that folder
but can you check on your mac and tell me please where does it save scratch files?
yes i know i need to keep photoshop open and running
can I ask you ? do you use el capitan or sierra?
because i guess there is a bug or in sierra or photoshop cc, i have monitor with DriveDx (it's a smart program) and at every time i run photoshop , under total write ,there is 1gb more
