Hi

How much free space do you have on the C drive for the scratch disk and how large are the images you're working on.

108 GB free should be fine, when you say A4 to A2, what are the exact pixel dimensions, I've seen people selecting inches instead of pixels by mistake when creating new documents, you can check you document dimensions from here

We're looking for the actual dimensions of a typical image you are working on - not pixels/inch, not size in inches or mm. We need this info to advise you. Please post the actual size in pixels (or the screen shot we showed you).

Hi @Wray and Nephew 

A2 @ 2000dpi will give you a file of around 4,23Gb.

Are you working with a lot of layers?

Can you give us a sense of the file size based on the image that @Ged_Traynor has shared above?

Is there a reason for you to work at 200dpi @Wray and Nephew ?
