Hello Damien hope you & your family had a good holiday . As you know I've had a issue with my scratch disc I was told the other day to free up some space when I down load my photos size them at web size is this so . Mine are like large like 4000x2000 would that help at all . 

Cheers

Oh no, you must never never never do that!  That would be catastrophic.  Always preserve every precious pixel your camera captures.

To free up space on your hard drive, move the photos you're no longer editing onto two external hard drives.  Do you own two external hard drives?

It's so important, you know? We can never trust any form of digital storage to be safe ... in fact, it's best to assume that every drive could fail tomorrow. So never keep only one copy of your important files.

Please stop posting new threads about the same old issues.

Have you cleared some space off your hard drive yet?  How much space is free now?

Don't get confused by the term "Scratch Disk".  It's not some mysterious extra hard drive hidden on your computer.  It simply refers to the amount of free space on your hard drive; and it sounds very much like you don't have enough free space.

Yeah, that's nowhere near enough.  Ten times that would barely be enough, in fact.  You have to get some files off there onto your backup drives.

Hello Damien my PC only had a 500GB hard drive so I sent it ofto the doctors to get a 1TB hard drive in it so hopefully that will fix the problem.

Yes indeed, that should help for a while. But be careful of your storage practices, otherwise the clutter that filled your 500GB will do the same to your 1TB.

To be honest, I'm not sad about this.  It will force you to clean up your computer and have much better habits with your files.
