Just when I thought I finally had it all right. I recently moved my files (but not catalog) to an external SD Drive. At first I could not overwrite mistakes, but then I reformatted the disc and it worked. Now, whenever I open photoshop I get this annoying message. "couldn't open the edit log file phtoshop edit log edit logging is disabled."
I do not remember disabling it. But I have a feeling it is now pointing to a defunct file.
This question was asked four years ago. There was a link to an obsolete page which explained the answer. Somehow it seems related to Preferences, History. But I do not see what I am doing wrong. But it is driving me crazy.
BTW, I usually search for a few hours before I give up and post to this forum. I cannot believe something so seemingluy simple is so elusive.
I don't remember exactly what finally fixed it. It seemed like I was on the right track the whole time. It was related to Preferences pointing to a folder that probably moved (because I had moved all my photos to external drive). But It seemed like I tried to change the locoation several times before it atually worked.
But I set the folder in Preferences > File Handling .> Cloud Document Directory to the file I wanted it on (on my local C drive) and it seems to have solved the problem.
