Photoshop (CS6) - massive temp file

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Using PS to make a really simple 'Thank you card' (an image, text and a couple of other layers) and I wasn't able to save the file to my desktop as "The scratch disk [was] full". I saved the file to another drive but was confused as there should be about 15Gb free on my C:; an SSD.

I've used windirstat and can see that Photoshop creates a massive >10Gb temp file whenever it's opened. Even a smallish cnavas of A4 @ 300dpi.

Any ideas? I've deleted the temp file with photoshop closed but it reappears as soon as it's opened.

I'vechanged the scratch disk in the preferences to use 4 other drives, not c:, but get the same problem.

Thanks a lot

Thanks, I have.

The first scratch disk has over 1Tb free and the other three have hundreds of Gb's.
