Hi - I'm running PS 22.3

 

Machine is an iMac (Big Sur) w/40gb RAM. PS set to 60% RAM Usage.

I have a 500gb SSD Hard Drive with 300GB of free space, but when I boot up PS it only shows 78gb of free space in the prefs scratch disk window?!?!!

 

This is before I have even created a new document.

I'm not getting the 'Scratch Disks Full' alert when working but it is DEFINITELY affecting performance. I work on large files and this didn't happen when running Catalina/PS19 - This has only happened since updating to Big Sur/PS22.3 a few weeks back.

 

Also what is showing is 'Purgeable space' - this seems like phantom data on my mac which I don't want!

 

Any ideas??

 

Help Please!!

You may find this link helpful. Also, when working in Photoshop, what does your Efficiency (screen capture) say?
