    We have just installed a new network server running Windows Server 2003 Small Business. We have encountered a strange issue. The system is RAID and we have set-up the storage drives so that part our data goes to two differant sections of the array(i.e. storage 1 and storage 2) inside divisions we have mapped folders to our workstations. When we try to save to folders in the storage 2 section we get a disk full error, but when we save to the storage 1 section there are no problems. We checked all the permissions and share properties. Also there are no errors using other programs, Photoshop CS or other image editing applications.

    Any ideas. The problem seems confined to Photoshop 7.

    I bet you also have your scratch disk for all users set to use the same folder. Scratch disks should be on the users PC. If you are also working on graphics files directly on the server there is more going on than just the picture being edited, watch the file sizes while a user is working on an image. It would be best to work on them locally and only save them to the server when completed.

    Our scratch disks are on the individual workstations. The error occurs only when saving back to one particular section of the storage server. Our typical file sizes (when the images are open in Photoshop) are only 17mbs.

    Have you watched the process and looked at the logs to see if it is the Photoshop files causing the storage problem?

    Nothing shows up on the server logs that there is a problem. No error messages at all.
