CS3 and temp files problem
I upgraded fro PS7 to CS3 a couple months ago and have been experiencing a few glitches. The biggest one is while working on a file, and doing an incremental save, I get a message saying the document could not be saved, because it is in use or has been left open. This frequently happens if I have my image browser open (but not that file) at the same time. Additionally I will get a PSD error message in the image browser (ACDSee). When I Reopen the image browser to that folder there will a new file in the folder with a name like: "~1455.tmp", that cannot be opened. If I change the extension to PSD, I can then open it. Which I figured out after several near heart attacks.
The interesting thing is; I have my scratch disk set to a separate physical disc, that is not the system disc, or the disc where the image files reside. So I'm rather baffled as to why PS is trying to write temp files to my image disc, let alone the parent folder of the file.
Oh, I should add, this is a Win XP box.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
