I had a hard disk crash on the drive that was used for the photoshop scratch disk. Now I can't open photoshop to fix the preferences. Is there any way to do this manually? I am using CS6. Would a clean install fix the problem?

Hold down Control-Alt-Shift while launching Photoshop (Command-Option-Shift on MacOS).
Or delete the Photoshop preferences folder.

I finally found this in another thread. It works beautifully.

Thanks Chris!
