  • RAM/Scratch Disk

    I asked a question on Richard Lynch's web site, and he provided a prompt answer. Basically, I told him that I had a question of why Photoshop would use the scratch disk at all if plenty of RAM were still available. Here is his answer:

            Holy Moly, that's what I call a reply. Richard, I don't think you're going to need to write a new book, just keep posting all that kind of info here. Thank you for taking the time to respond so thoroughly and Ed for sharing it with us. I will have to read it in depth when I get done here.

              Scratch Sizes, Ram, and Efficiency
              by Ed_L
              I need a little help understanding this. I'm running a PC with 256 megs of ram. When I have an image open and I view "efficiency" in the status bar, I sometimes get less than 100%. Doesn't this mean I am using the scratch disk? An example of one image shows 95% efficiency, and scratch sizes...

              by Ed_L
              I sent my question to Richard, and he e-mailed a very long reply. If anyone is interested, give me your e-mail address, and I'll be glad to send it your way. I won't go through PM, it has to go through your regular e-mail address.

              by Ed_L
              I'm not sure if this was a fluke, or if it's always that way....but! I just installed a second hard drive. Previously, of course, I had my scratch disk on the primary (only) hard drive. After installing a second drive, I set aside a partitioned 5 GB for my scratch disk. My primary (original) drive has...

              Hard drive question
              by Ed_L
              Not knowing much at all about computers, I have a question about hard drives. I'm considering buying a second hard drive, and I have 512 MB DDR Ram installed in my Dell computer. The Ram is listed as PC 2100. I've seen hard drives advertised as 5400 rpm and PC 133. There is another advertised as 7200...
