    Will an external hardrive increase my scratch disk size??

      So I have Photoshop CS5 On my Laptop (running in windows 7) and I have just enough scratch disk space to be using it most of the time. However with bigger files it sometimes stops because scratch disks are full and i need to close everything else. I have about 1GB free on my laptops drive which it uses.

      I've read that having an external hard drive, one that you plug via usb will allow me to add anther scratch disk. Before I buy one can anyone suggest how big of a size I need and if there are specific things I should look for, the hard drive will just be for the scratch disk as my laptop has a memory card which i store everything else.


      Thank you
