Scratch disk fills up no matter how big, no auto delete (purge) anymore?

Hi,

 

I observed in my workflow that scratchdisk is filling up very quickly playing actions in batch automation. This is a big issue for my business because we let the images process while we are away from the computer, but at a given moment when the scratch disk is full the processing stops because of the error. Why it is not possible for Photoshop to purge automatically the scratch data from the disk? Why does it need soo much free space? In older versions of Photoshop this was not an issue. 

Please resolve this issue or include an option to be able to set automatic purge after exceeding a certain cache file size. 

 

Thank you!

120GB hardly seems enough for a demanding workflow. I suggest you set up an external disk for scratch. Or, if it manages a good part of the batch, set up to restart Photoshop regularly.
