A basic way of putting it is the scratch file is photoshops own "pagefile" it uses it for undo and histogram etc. In preferences just pop it on another drive.

You dont make anything... get in front of the program and follow..... it will become apparent

you don't even have to do it...photoshop uses it's own sort of temp file as you make changes and apply filters and such...if the temp file and the program are on the same drive it can run slower, unless you are a power user it doesn't matter much so don't worry, but if ya have an extra HD set the swapfile for ps to be on that drive like kylie said :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
