    High Disk Usage and PSDs are too Slow in Windows 10 Pro

    saurabhtiwary

      Hi,

       

      I recently migrated from a Dell i3 Laptop running windows 8.1 pro to HP Mini Z2 G3 i7 Workstation with 2Gb graphics card all running on Windows 10 pro.

       

      The Photoshop is struggling to open PSDs and my disk usage is generally higher and goes upto 100%. Other Applications start to work very slow as well after the photoshop is initialized.
      PSD size is 64MB which takes 50 sec to open in i3 Windows 8.1 pro but the same PSD is taking more than 10 minutes to open on my new system(both have same version of Photoshop i.e. 19.0)

       

      How to fix this issue?

       

      Thanks in advance.

          How much RAM in the old and the new system?

            Hi

            Can you go to Photoshop > Help >System info - click copy and paste the info here.

              In both the system, the RAM is 8GB.

               


              I was just going through the preference setting, there was a bit of difference in settings in both the system,

               

              But playing with it made a bit of difference.

               

              What setting should I use (Cache history etc.) in all optimize buttons  to efficiently use the high end device considering I am working on UI with more than 1000 layers.

                Take a look here

                Optimize performance Photoshop CC

                 

                8GB of RAM it's not really enough, minimum I would recommend is 16GB

                PS is very RAM hungry and you have to remember that the OS and other apps will be using RAM as well

                    It's a wild guess but I see only 2MB of RAM are available after Photoshop has taken what it wants. This could be leaving the system crippled. Try LOWERING the Photoshop memory limit to 80% or even 70%.

                      I'd have a good look at Scratch space arrangements.  With so little free memory, Photoshop will be creating very large temp files.  You can test this by grouping all your layers and copying them a couple of times, which will drive up the scratch file size.  If you have to wait wile this happens, then that's a bottleneck.
