Adobe Photoshop CC Full Scratch Disk

I have been using Adobe Creative Cloud Photoshop for over a year, all of a sudden I am getting scratch Disk Errors on everything I try and do.. "Scratch Disk are Full" .. I only have one drive and it has 77gb free.. Its almost acting like it doesn't know that disk space is free.. Any ideas?

Just figured out that once the program opens it creates a massive temp file, when I delete it comes right back when I open it..

Please try Disk Cleanup and then Try Disk Defragmenter and verify the status.

I think Uninstall >> restart PC >> and reinstalling it can fix the issue.

but create a restore point before doing that.

"all of a sudden I am getting scratch Disk Errors" - could it be that your free disk space was never as low as now? Maybe that's just how Photoshop works.

Disk Scan worked, for whatever reason Windows couldn't read the actual available space. Even though it showed no errors the disk began to display accurate information. Also for good measure reinstalled CC and PS... Thanks Ramin

Sfc is no disk scan (as chkdsk is) but file integrity checking. But sfc is what helped you, right?
