"You have Adobe Photoshop primary scratch and win primary paging fileon the same volume, It is recommened you set Photoshop primaryscatch volume on a different volume, preferably on a different physical drive"
How do I do as it suggest's,
Also and more alarming all my pictures have dissapeared, there are some Iconsfor adobe pictures but when i click on them it says no preview available.
A scratch disk will be another physical hard drive this can be partitioned but is advisable to leave the scratch disk partition with no other data on it to optimise the effect it has.By having additional hard drives set as these, you speed up Photoshop's overall performance.
If your viewing Photoshop help in explorer window you should see a warning bar under the top toolbar , if you click in there you have the option to allow java to run this will be followed by a popup warning box, thats taking it java is installed.
The scratch file is a temporary directory that photoshop uses when working on pictures, in a way its like windows virtual memory. That is why u get the message because you have windows page file(virtual memory) and photoshops version of this on the same drive.
Unless you have another hard drive in your pc that you can point photoshops scratch file too or another partion on your drive then there isn't anything you can do to get round this prob.
I have the scratch file on the same drive as my windows page file and do not have any major problems apart from the fact that sometimes pictures are slow to load up
I had this message appear after installing 7 (while still using 6) after I removed 6 the message went away.If 6 starts to slow up. Try holding Alt+ Shift+ Cntl as you start up 6 you will get a message asking if you want to delete settings say yes it might help. I had to do this regular till I got more memory and disc space.
