Photoshop 7 will not work on a hard drive over 1 terabyte. I just installed a 1.5terabyte drive and it continues to tell me it cannot initialize because the scratch disk are full. It runs perfect on a 300gig, 200gig and 120gig hard drive. Hope this helps someone having SCRATCH DISK ERRORS on newer larger hard drives.

I had the same problem. I couldn't intialize because there was not enough RAM. Having 12 gigs of RAM I knew this wasn't the case. I had three versions of Photoshop installed (4.0, 5.5 and 6). I uninstalled 5.5 and now it works fine.
Thanks to the poster above.

hey guys hello to all of you...i had the same problem regarding "cannot open .... because the scratch disk is full".
i tried to find the answer to solve the problem here...but i didn't find anything here so i will say what i did and worked for me...

I deleted useless things from the disk that contained photoshop, and so freeing about 4gb of space and now i can use it as i did before.

i hope this post helps you too...good luck with your work!

photoshop cs4 extended freezes then shutdown without notice.

Honey.

When you try to install the Adobe Photoshop 7.0.1 update in Windows, the installer returns the error "Component Move Data had the following error Media Name:data Component File Group: File C:\Docume~1\Owner\Locals~1\Temp\WZSE1.TMP\data1.hdr Error Number: -113 (refer to the online help)."
Okay, I visited about three sites to see whether I can help it or not. I read that you need to extract files. Do that. Help:
1. Download the Adobe Photoshop [mine is 7.0] - Click SAVE not OPEN WITH. I downloaded it here: http://www.brothersoft.com/adobe-photoshop-59748.html
2. When it downloads right-click on the Zip.
3. Choose EXTRACT HERE.
4. Wait until it extracts and then delete the Zip file. [you should have a folder named Photoshop where you extracted the zip.]
5. Okay, empty the recycle bin.
6. Run the Setup file [the icon is a blue computer]
7. The setup should start, otherwise repeat all the above [try another download location.]
8. Fill out name and all of that. The serial i used was: 1045-1209-6738-4668-7696-2783 and it worked great.
9. Click on where you want to install it... you know what to do.

Now, the error shouldn't show anymore.
I don't know about you, but it worked fine for me. I always get these kinds of problems solved.
Sorry for my English, I hope you got the poin. ;)

Thank you very much, Jessica. You advice about Error 113 worked!

How to get rid of the "disk error"!

Go To Photoshop > Edit > Preferences > Perfomance

At the "Memory Usage" section, take the slider of "Let Photoshop use..." and slide to the right so photoshop uses 100%

At the Scratch Disk section, select all harddrive and activate the checkboxes! And click OK!

Then restart Photoshop and the problem is fixed.
My photoshop is running perfectly!

I need SERIOUS help. Every time I open photoshop it says, "Could not initialize photoshop because scratch disks are full." or something along those lines.

I've un-installed it and re-installed it, it still says that. Before a while ago it said that, so I uninstalled it and re installed it than it worked but not the un-install re-install method is not working. Any help here?

ok about Error 113 for photoshop. You need to close any other software like aim or msn. Then reinstall photoshop and hopefully you'll be fine...

Joe

Sodria I wanted to say thank you, I have not been able to use my photoshop for a long time, it would open up and then close before I could do anything. I uninstalled and reinstalled and nothing. I saw your post and gave it a try. It worked! thank you, thank you , thank you!

How do I access .tmp files? I have moved them to new folders, renamed them and I still "Cannot complete your request because this is not the right kind of document." Any help would greatly appreciated.

I am running photoshop CS2 and I am trying to save a file using the "save as", I keep getting an error saying, Could not save as "file name" because of a disk error.
Is there a way to work around and save this file, I don't want to have to quit PS and loose my work.

Gianni Bologna

Dude, I got the scratch disk full error too. I moved the Adobe preferences folder to another partition. When I refired PS8 it opened right up no problem. Edits, saves, everything hunky dory...

I have Photoshop 7.0 When i open New document file of size 36 x 48 inch with 600 dpi i got massege "Couuld not open new file because The Scratch Disk are full" Can Some one help me.

Soadria:

• PS starts okay, you edit some photo then go to save a JPEG, and it just hangs, with most of the menus grayed out, no way to even exit. The JPEG settings dialog box is located off screen.


I think I love you.

I didn't have to reset any settings (I just jacked my resolution waaay up for a few minutes) but sure enough, my sudden PS problems with it "locking up" every time I saved a JPG was indeed caused by the dialog box showing up offscreen.

I slid it back over, reset my res, and I'm now back in business. Woo! =D

"I have photoshop 7. It opens up and then closes down automatically before i get a chance to do anything.. can ne1 help"

-I'm having the same problem. It all happened after I opened a .psd file that was sent to me. After the somewhat loading screen, it closes by itself.

Rick Hines

I'm getting the following error.

"Could not complete the export command because there is not enough memory(RAM).

The machine has 4gb of ram. I just put in a new drive 3 days ago for the scratch disk. I'm running windows XP SP2

Thanks.

Does anyone knows how to repair a corrupted .PSD file? I recovered from a lost HDD partition, but even thought it shows the right extension can't still opened. Photoshop does not recognize as a valid .PSD file
