Latest startup bug since 2018 upgrade.
Photoshop.exe - No Disk
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive E.

Wow. I'm on Creative Cloud, Photoshop CC 2018. I now get this error when trying to open PS. I haven't seen an error like this since at least 1999. What the heck?

I'm having the same problem. I still haven't figured it out. Any luck?

Hold down ctrl + all (win) or cmd + opt on launch of Photoshop. Try setting your scratch disk to your start-up disk.

There is a bad recommendation in there to change a registry item. There is also a good suggestion that didn't work all the time for me. I'll try the Scratch Disk idea. thanks
