A Reader Asks... Photoshop 7 Not Working in Vista, Scratch Disks Full?

Q: Don Asks - I just upgraded my computer which had Vista installed. My Photoshop v7 will not work with Vista. I keep getting that the scratch disc is full. Since it is an older version of photoshop, Adobe is not interested in solving the problem. Help!

A: Scratch Disks are the temporary hard drive space Photoshop uses to store image data as you manipulate it. The application generally uses a lot of space, so it allows you to use a four-tierd approach. You can specify up to four different scratch disks, and use whichever hard drive has sufficient space for the purpose in any order you choose. As drive space is gobbled up by massive temporary files, Photoshop automatically moves to the next scratch disk. If the system runs out of sufficient temp. hard drive space it will kick up a "scratch disks are full" error. To fix this, we need to change the scratch disk from the default Startup (C:/) to a drive partition letter with more room. In Photoshop go to > Edit > Preferences > Plug-Ins & Scratch Disks > change the First scratch disk to whichever hard drive letter has the most free disk space. If all hard drive partitions in your computer are nearly full, either uninstall some applications from C:\ or install a fresh hard drive. Generally, the drive should have at least 2GB free.
