If you have more harddrives add them into PS preferences. So Photoshop can swap there.

Howdy Sharon,

First, empty your operating system's trash.  Then delete all your temporary and offline Internet files.  If you still don't have enough room, you're going to need to delete some files to make space or, as Jaroslav suggests, add another hard drive.

Hope that helps,
David

That warning can pop up as a rather generic "there's something wrong here" type of warning. You can get it even with enough RAM and enough scratch disk space. Usually, quitting and relaunching Photoshop will fix it if it crops up. I work on an older, slower computer much of the time and have seen it only once in the past several years, and most people I know rarely if ever see it.  On occasion something more is wrong and you need to try resetting your preferences. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html

If that doesn't work and the problem is even more extreme than at all typical, you might need to try reinstalling from the Creative Cloud. So yes, there is a fault, but it's pretty local to you and it's just that unfortunately, a lot of these warnings seem to be used more as placeholders than anything helpful to us. Hopefully one of these will fix it. If not, then an Adobe Staff member should be able to help you troubleshoot.

Also found that I can export the file in same format or change format and then I can save it, but procedure is so cumbersome, I feel a problem in Adobe since it has been upgraded...
