Photoshop has basically stopped working on my computer.  There is slowness and image artifacts as in the screenshot below - the full image appearing over magnified sections of the image.  The file is large (11 GB) but I have over 2000 GB of free scratch disk space.  I have worked on hundreds of files this large or in the vicinity without issue.  There are only 12 History states showing here and the problems start almost as soon as I open the file.  I recall a past issue with my graphics card and there have been posts by others with this same graphics card.  Is there a known issue with the NVIDIA 1050ti and a solution to get PS working again?  Thank you.  My OS is Windows 11.  I have 80% RAM free (26 of 32 GB).  [UPDATE]:  I deselected my C drive as a scratch disk and this seems to have solved things.  I see on Adobe's page "Set up Scratch Disks in Photoshop" the statement "scratch disks should be on a different drive than the one your operating system uses for virtual memory."  I assume this is my C drive.  Maybe that's what the problem was.

Yes, that is correct.  I have had no issues whatsoever since doing that.

So the problem is solved by changing scratch disk?
