Photoshop CS5 Temp files...

Recommended Posts

Strange things are happening....

 

Photoshop keeps making temp files on my scratch disc, but does not get rid of them when I close the program. To my knowledge, I thought photoshop deleted these files on your scratch disk upon exiting. Whats more confusing, is even with photoshop closed, there are certain temp files I cannot manually delete.

 

Anyone else experiencing this?

Any thoughts or solutions?

 

Thanks,

Jim

I've got the same thing happening here. It seems like After Effects has a bunch of temp files too. I have no idea why they stick around. I only noticed it when I got Carbon Copy Cloner to do a backup recently, and saw all these temp files being copied across. What a waste of space :)

Well, I think I got SOMEWHERE. I noticed that I had 3 different scratch disks selected in Photoshop and the temp files I was having issues with was on the very last drive in my list. I opened the hard drive contents of my FIRST drive and tested a document and I saw the temp file get created, and immediately went away when I closed PS. So for now, I just choose ONE drive as a scratch disk and looks like its working as it should.
