I have this same problem. I run InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat frequently at the same time. I may run 4 or 5 other apps during the day as well. At the end of the day, Data BackUP is supposed to run to a USB backup drive that I have on my G5 but it fails because it can't create a temporary file needed to execute the program. I believe that's happening because the paging file is full and I only have 1.5 GB of ram on the machine. The problem goes away with a 'restart'. So nobody has really answered the question clearly. Is there a way to clear the paging file without a 'restart'. I'm going after more ram soon.
