Scratch disks are full??!!
on Oct 20, 2008 at 2:01:21 am

I am doing a lynda.com tutorial on moving on still (FCP)

i am trying to do a simple crop of an mage and i keep getting this error message that my scratch disks are full - the HD where the apps live has 20 GB left of unused space and the 2nd internal drive where the media lives has 32 GB of unused space remaining.

I dont understand what is going wrong here - can someone please help me?

thank you

best

Lisa

Check your prefs and see what it's using for scratch space.

I have the scratch set to the main HD where my apps live - i also tried checking a 2nd location the 2nd internal drive where the actual media files i am working with live.

The file itself is a 28mb picture that came with the lynda.com tutorial

I have a powermac g5 dual 1.8ghz w/ 4gb RAM and the latest version of Leopard & FCP.

any help would be great

thank you

Lisa

You need more hard drive space... and really more RAM

For $400 I was able to add 1 TB of internal storage and 8 GB to a Mac Pro this week (macsales.com)

Suggest you consider beefing up system and clearing out drives

thanks for the response

this makes no sense though - i am just cropping 1 simple image why would i need more horse power to do this - i never had a problem doing a crop on cs2 - i dont get whats going on here? - should not need aMacpro with 8 gb of ram and a tb internal 2nd drive to crop a image!

please someone advise further

thank you

Yeah, you should be able to do what you are doing easy for what you have. I'd start by reinstalling Photoshop. Something is not write. If that doesn't work, I'd say something is wrong with your Mac
