Hello.

I am working on a project for work where I use a script to export images from photoshop (Over 6000ish images)

I noticed that Photoshop stops working after a while and MY C DRIVE IS FILLED UP.

Once closing Photoshop, the Temp file goes away and my C Drive is back to normal.

When I reopen Photoshop and restard the Script... It happens again.

(This has not happened before.)

 

Thoughts?

That's the scratch disk, and this is normal behavior.

 

You need to make sure you have enough scratch disk space, especially for an I/O-intensive task like this.

 

Raster image editing generally moves large amounts of data, much more than any RAM you may have installed. It has to go somewhere. So this temporary working data are written to disk. That's the scratch disk, and it needs free space.

 

Personally I would never do any extensive work with less than 500 GB available (I have much more).
