Yesterday I reset my PC (kept my personal files, but removed all programs). When the reset was over, I went ahead and reinstalled all my Adobe apps using the Creative Cloud.
However, when trying to run Photoshop today, I get this "Could not Initialize Photoshop due to disk error" error message right after the launch window shows up. (Photoshop never actually opens). I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but still not working. Never had this issue before. Any ideas? I'm running Windows 10 Home 64-bit. I have two drives and none of them are close to being full.
I initially tried with the latest version. Then I tried with the version right before the latest version. And then I tried a few more versions before the latest version. They all gave the same message.
Photoshop is installed on my secondary 😧 drive which has 334GB of free space. While my C: drive (SSD drive for Windows and all that) has 43.5GB of free space. (before I reset my computer, it was installed on my 😧 drive as well) I read the troubleshooting steps and when I hold down CTRL+ALT during launch, it gives me the same error message so I am unable to change scratch disk preferences.
