At random points of time when I try to open my .psd documents with Photoshop an error shows up that says I have a Disk Error. Does anyone know how to fix this so that my documents open?

You're not getting a Photoshop error, you're getting a system error that Photoshop is passing on to you because it is important for you to know. Your OS thinks that your disk has serious problems, reports that to Photoshop, then Photoshop reports it to you.

Use your OS utilities, or third party utilities, to fix your disk data structures.

Also, if this happens often, make sure you have a back of your drives, because you might need to replace that drive.
