Using PS CS6. I was transforming an image, and when I applied the transformation I got the notice in the question. So, what do I do to fix this?

Usually it means that you missed something and are trying to create a HUGE result -- and you really don't have enough scratch space for that huge result. (people do this all the time with crop - forgetting that they set a high resolution)

Sometimes it just means that you are out of scratch space on your disk.

Yup. Agree with Chris.

When you say "Transforming an image" are you do Image>Image Size..., cropping or another kind of transform. If you post a screen shot of your settings, that may help us.
