I just updated to PS v 21.0.3 20200115.r.91 2020/01/15: 21f283574f6 x64. The latest version of PS does not recognize my scratch drive. That is, PS | Edit | Preferences | Scratch Drives does not list the scratch drive.


The prior version of PS used this scratch drive without issue.


The drive is


457 GB free

The computer has been restarted. I have deleted ...AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2020\Adobe Photoshop 2020 Settings.

This problem is not resolve and prevents me from using PS.

We're not able to reproduce this. What OS/version are you running on? Which version did this start happening in? (e.g. Did your scratch disk show correctly in 21.0.0, 21.0.1, and 21.0.2 and it's a new problem to 21.0.3?) Can you post a screen shot of what you're seeing in the Preferences > Scratch Disk dialog?
