Apologeis if this has been posted before but I've been searching all morning and haven't found anything that quite solves my particular issue it's been driving me crazy!
Every time I open a particular photoshop document (it is a quite large 5GB Animation file) and click on 'About this mac' I see 1.8TB of information fill up my harddrive listed as 'Other' so I get the 'scratch disks full' error appear even though before opening the document I have 1.8TB of storage free on my mac. Leaving me unable to 'Purge' the backups from the document it's self.
I have been into 'Library' - 'Application support' and deleted all the cache files for adobe programs in there but still no success. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Photoshop. I have run scans on Clean my mac and Treesize and neither of them can locate the files generated by opening a single photoshop document. I have also turned off 'Automatically save auto recovery information' but I am unable to open the document in the first place to be able to 'Purge' the backup files.
