To change the scratch disk assignment:

1 Choose Edit > Preferences > Plug-Ins & Scratch Disks.

2 Do one of the following:

• (Photoshop) Choose the desired disks from the menus. You can assign up to four scratch disks of any size your file system supports. Photoshop lets you create up to 200 GB of scratch disk space using those scratch disks.

• (ImageReady) Choose a primary scratch disk.

3 Click OK.

4 Restart Photoshop or ImageReady for the change to take effect.

Important: The scratch disk file that is created must be in contiguous hard disk space. For this reason you should frequently optimize your hard disk. Adobe recommends that you use a disk tool utility, such as Windows Disk Defragmenter or Norton Speed Disk, to defragment your hard drive on a regular basis. See your Windows or Mac OS documentation for information on defragmentation utilities.
