I purchased a new computer last year and I have Photoshop and Lightroom installed on it.

Yesterday, I went to install a program and was shocked to see how little space I had left on my 230GB hard drive. I started looking through various files to see where all this space had been used up, and it took me to 3 files called "Photoshop Temp"

Path:

Local Disk (C: )\Users\Owner\AppData\​Local\Temp\Photoshop Temp

Between these 3 file they use 128GB of hard disk space. What on earth are they and why are they using up so much of my memory???????????????

You can safely delete the temp file. Just make sure Photoshop is not open when you do it.

I've just deleted the file and have no gained a whopping 128GB of hard disk space!!!

Why is this file so huge and where did it come from???
