I'm using Photoshop on Windows 7 X86 right now and am trying to save a project but I get an error "Cannot save file, not enough scratch memory."

What is scratch memory and is there a way to free it up without restarting (and losing my project)?

Thanks. :)

PS is not talking about RAM but disk here. It uses a scratch disk, which is propably full. You can configure this at Edit->Preferences->Performance

Thanks, I moved the slider all the way to the right, hit ok and I can now save my file. – Kyle Dec 20 '10 at 11:30
