Since 21.1.2 update yesterday Scratch Disk Error pops up after I use the Magic Wand tool. Temp files are HUGE. Did everything mentioned in earlier threats, but when using the Crop Tool PS gives me the Error Message immediately. There is 250GB of a 1TB SSD left to use for PS, so no Memory issue here.

You probably have inches (or something similar) set as the unit for the crop tool, and have a large value entered thinking it's set to pixels. As you can image, this will create huge files when cropping.

Check your settings or reset the crop tool: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/basic-troubleshooting.html#tool
