    Hi guys,

    Just a(hopefully) quick problem, I changed my Photoshop preferences yesterday and switched my Scratch disk to a drive I have moved into a free bay in my Leopard based Mac Pro, when I have come to launch PS CS3 today it refuses to launch, giving me an error message saying " Could not initialise Photoshop because the drive is not available".

    Is there anyway of booting Photoshop in some kind of 'safe' mode so I can get past this to change the prefs back?

    Or can I delete the preference files from somewhere?

    Hope this is an easy one to crack ?

    Oops, Jumped the gun and posted this as I needed an answer quickly, solved it by deleting my preference file!

    Resetting Photoshop Preferences:

    Hold down Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys (Mac: Command, Option, Shift) while starting Photoshop. A dialog box will appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences file.
