:tusks: Just got an iMac, partitioned hard drive. I am installing Adobe CS to my 'applications' partition. Worked fine. Opened Photoshop, set scratch disks to another partition I designated to scratch disks. Upon relaunching Photoshop I get the message "cannot initiate photoshop disk can't be found" (or something to this effect do not have exact words)

I fixed that problem and am able to launch photoshop again...but now I am hesitant to designate my scratch disk. How do I set my scratch disk correctly?

Thanks in advance for your help

That's a strange one. I can set my external Firewire as a scratch disk no problems.

What format did you use for the scratch disk partition?

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

I am not sure exactly. it is just a partition of my hard drive that i named scratch disk. I partitioned my hard drive thru disk utility.

Alright, now we're sort of getting somewhere...

Right click that drive and select Get Info, then tell us what format it uses.
