Re: Disk is full error

I have had the same problem with another old Adobe program, Photoshop Elements 2.0.  I just purchased a 5 TB external drive to replace a deteriorating 3 TB external drive.  When I try to save files to the new 5 TB drive, PSE says it cannot do it because the drive is full - even though it has almost 4 TB of available space.  It does, however, still save files to the old 3 TB drive.  Having read the solution posted above, I then partitioned the new drive into drives of  about 2.5 TB each, thinking that if PSE 2.0 works with a 3 TB drive, it should work with a 2.5 TB drive.  Unfortunately, I still get the same message when I try to save a file - it cannot do it because the drive is full.

 

Any suggestions, please?

 

Thank you.

 

Dave

The problem is that pse 2 (as is the case with photoshop 7 of the same vintage) can't see hard drives with free space of more that 1TB. Photoshop elements 3 and newer had that issue corrected. I'd suggest either saving to your boot drive and then moving the files over to the external drive or making a partition of 1TB on the external drive. Here's an internal drive with 1.77 TB of free space and when trying to save using pse 2, it generates the same message you got.

Hi @defaultyy9ufqwxf242 

Since your question is about Photoshop Elements, I have moved this from a thread in the Photoshop forum where you posted.

 

Here is the original thread for reference:

Amazing 2.0 would even work-- I can't even get the installer to work.  Seriously though- just buty the latest version- what you're using hasn't been supported for years, that alone will make it next to impossible for you to get any help with this. 

Save yourself the frustration- just buy the newest version.

Thank you for the advice.  It would appear that that's what I will have to do.  At least I got a lot of years out of PSE 2.0.  🙂
