How do I empty my scratch disk? I'm running Photoshop and QuarkXpress so I have some pretty big files that I've been working with. A notice popped up that said my scratch disk is full and now I'm not sure what to do after searching for a few minutes.


Go to the edit menu. At the bottom is a command called 'purge', in the sub menu click on 'all'. It tells you that this cannot be undone, but that's OK unless you really need the clipboard, histories or undo. Also, you can change the scratch disk in the preferences bit under the 'Memory and Scratch Disks' bit (I think it's called in 5.5). The scratch disk is cleared when you quit PS.
