i "All my scratch disks are set to my second partition, which has around or at least 200GB of free space."
Tell us more about your I/O configuration. The above bothers me and may be at least part of your problem.
Q9450 Yorkfield (12MB Cache) @ 3.2GHz
2GB G.Skill PC2-6400 (400MHz) x2 (4GB total, running with 3.5GB due to 32-bit limitations)
NVIDIA FX5200 (temporary, waiting for ATI HD4850 to come back from RMA)
500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.1 SATA-II w/ SATA-II enabled
I have my 500GB harddrive partitioned into two partitions: 40GB (C) and 425GB (D). C is for Windows XP (includes drivers, codecs, and things that relate heavily to the core of Windows; stuff that isn't important enough to backup). D is for everything else, which includes games, utilities/tools, media (images, video, music), developer material, etc.
On D, you would find the following logical layout of folders:
Developer, Games, Media, Network, Utilities, Mozilla Firefox, Temp.
Temp is so that I can (in an organized fashion) set the temporary locations and scratch disks for programs here. All scratch disks are set to D:\Temp\Premiere, and currently reports 121.9GB of free space. I can easily free up 114GB to 240GB of material on D though (which I plan to do sometime anyway).
What information do you want to know? Be specific, I'm not stupid and illiterate like most people.
EDIT :: I didn't mention this in my post, but I did take the precautions to search through the Troubleshooting database for Premiere, and I did read through the optimizations for Windows XP article (which I already had the same suggestions applied to my computer since the dawn of time -- so that wasn't really useful).
EDIT2 :: I checked the troubleshooting link and none of those really apply. (Do you even know what a memory leak is?)
I don't see how hard drive configuration would cause this issue. Having said that, I still recommend using a minimum of three drives, none of them partitioned.
System drive for OS and programs.
Project drive for projects/scratch disks.
Media drive just for media.
> Do you even know what a memory leak is?)
I always thought that was when the program decided it needed to use the bathroom, forgot all about it, and suffered the consequences.
