Last night I was looking down the 'actions' list in CS and thought the
reflection in water sounded interesting. I clicked the play button for
it with a selected image and sat back. Well, the hard drive was
running so something was happening... and happening and happening.
After about five minutes the hard drive was still well in action and
nothing was happening on screen. I tried to stop the action but was
unable to click on the program, except the top bar, so I clicked
close. On it ran, on and on. I tried the three finger shuffle and at
first was able to do this and of course it said 'not responding' but
that's what it said every time and eventually it wouldn't even let me
I tried something like ten times to stop it with this method then I
decided there was some danger here so hit the reset button my machine.
When it came back up all appeared well but I had a feeling. so I
looked at how much space was left on my HD. From a 80gb hd I now had
something like quarter space left, which should have been the other
way round. I did a search for files altered today and found this
thing, this huuuuuuge file which was being created by CS, bigger than
the rest of the stuff on the HD by far. A deletion quickly rescued the
space but I had to know how safe or not it was so I basically did it
deliberately again, but this time I was quicker off the mark to shut
it down and found again this huge file, though not as huge as last
time. I also found files which were reportedly some sort of error
dump, some of which were over 100mb.
I've never had this sort of problem with a program before... can't
imagine what would have happened if I hadn't hit the reset button.
Anyone have any idea what would occur if the drive becomes full this
