    Delete or archive some stuff. Gbs worth...

    For Photoshopping and running OSX smoothly, I would keep a min of 15-25gb free on your hard drive. Some scratch files can get up to 3-4gb depending on the files you are working on.

    Do you have your scratch disk on the same drive as your OS & apps ? If so, you will continue to get this error frequently. The ideal situation is to use a seperate, empty drive for the SD, (not a partition of the boot drive)
