Hi

What exact version of Photoshop and operating system do you have, how much free space do you have available for the scratch disk, you can check in preferences

How large are the files you're working on, 30GB can fill up pretty quickly depending on the size of your files

If the total free space you have is only 30GB, you will need to either delete files or buy an external hard drive. You are going to have more problems than just Photoshop.

From within Photoshop, you could try Edit > Purge > All, but if this is happening as soon as you open your file, it might not be of any help. Worth a try, at least.
