    Here you go!

    In short, you've run out of space due to temp files. Run CCleaner on your machine if it's a PC. If it's a Mac, upgrade to a Leapfrog.

    You can always change the source of your scratch disks as well. Basically, when you are working on a project, until changes to a document are made, those changes exist as temp files on your RAM or "scratch disks" until you save them.

    When I run PS, I have my scratch disk set to the largest partition available. Also, I'm a "Ctrl+S" freak for this very reason (and others). Another thing to note is that when you run PS, it's a RAM hog. Basically anything you have running takes up available RAM PS could be using. Typically when I'm running PS, it's the ONLY thing I have running.
