Clear Adobe Scratch Disks

If Photoshop or another Adobe app reports that the scratch disk is full, it's most likely that the users' C: drive is filled. To help alleviate the problem, delete temporary files from the machine.

  1. Close all Adobe applications if possible.
  2. Open a PowerShell window. Hotkey: Windows + X, then I.
  3. Paste: gci $env:temp | rm -recurse -force then hit ENTER.
  4. You will see some errors from in-use files that cannot be deleted. Once the process is complete, you can close the PowerShell window.
  5. Check the free space on C: to confirm that some space is available.
