    Scratch disk is write protected? WTH? CS5 giving me weird error

      Hi all. I have a new system that was recently built and I'm getting a strange error that is defying explanation. When I try to open up a project I get this error saying the Scratch Disk is write protected and that it is switching the scratch folder to my My Documents folder on the C drive.

       

      WTH is that about?

       

      This is an i7 3.4GHz Sandybridge based system. Two Samsung 500GB's in a RAID 0 for scratch and two Samsung 1TB's in a Mirror RAID for files. My C drive is an Intel SSD.

       

      Anyone ever heard of this? it's just strange.
