    Ok.. I have searched for help with this and I'm not finding a solution so I thought I'd post this. When I run photoshop CS on my macbook I often receive a message when editing a photo that says your startup disk space is full. I have a whopping 70+ gigs available on my harddrive and 2 gb of Ram so I'm not sure what the problem is. I'm only running one harddrive and I don't have much on it. I've tried repairing permissions and it still seems to pop up sometimes. Is there any way to fix this and avoid the error? Thanks for your time.

    Start up disk or scratch disk? Scratch disk is a virtual disk scheme used by PS. If that's what you're seing, you can adjust it's size somewhere in PS, but I can't remember exactly where.

    I've had Photoshop routinely use up 100GB as scratch space and give me the low disk space warning. Check your preferences and you can change that.

    Ok I'll try that. What would you suggest I change the setting to?
