Adobe Photoshop CS2 closing as I save

I will be working on a 300 mb file, go to save it and photoshop will just close , then a few seconds later asks me if I want to send the report to adobe.  The reports says the following

Exception-: Exc_bad_access (0x001)
Codes:  Kern_protection_failure (0x0002) at 0x0000000

It seems similar to this topic
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Graphics/Photoshop/Q_21120820.html?query=photoshop+exc_bad_access&clearTAFilter=true

Any ideas how I can trouble shoot this or prevent it from crashing?

Thanks

Hmm, I'm not too sure, but here's what I suggest:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi262

Post a 20 point "pointer" question in a Topic Area such as "Networking" with the link to this question here.  Make the subject title something like "Pointer to 500 points, need help saving file in a network" and that should get some networking experts in here to help you with that problem :)

(to close the pointer question make a request in Community Support for a moderator close it up for you)

does this happen when you go to file/save or CTR+S?  Or both?

Exc_bad_access (0x001) usually indicates that you are running into a glitch reading from your hard drive. This may be something serious (like a hard drive about to fail) but most likely not. It could just be a corrupted bit of data on your disk that you keep running into.

Here are instructions on how to check and if necessary repair your disk: http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/repairprocess.html

ANY time you experience weird or erratic behavior with PhotoShop, the first thing you should do (according to Adobe) is to rebuild the preferences file.

Hold down the Command, Option, Shift keys (PC: Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys) while starting Photoshop. A dialog box will appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences file.

Ok When he saves the file to the desktop it does not crash out, so I am guessing it has something to do with the characters in photoshop for file location length, any ideas on how this can be repaired. It only crashes when he tries to save it directly to the server.

I would imagine that the problem is the result of a file size that is way to large for PS to handle a save in.  I believe saving it to the server might be causing the problem because PS can't handle it, or the workspace where the file was created doesn't have sufficient memory in the machine.  Is this the case?

the local machine has plenty of hard drive space .  IT is a dual processor G5, 4 gig of ram,  and he doesnt have a problem saving it to his desktop, its when he saves to the server that he has the issue.  He saves it and it crashes out. mY guess is its the file path, because when he saves on the server, he saves to a folder within a folder within a folder and so on.  Any ideas how to repair ?
