After Catalina update with CC Photoshop 20.0.6 corrupted the PSD files I worked on.
Attached is a screenshot, I get the message "Could not complete your request because of a program error." I can create new files, open some psd's and other formats. You never know when it won't open the next time. Once it doesn't open, it doesn't open on other systems as well. I have done a clean install, deleted all prefs. No luck so far.

Hi Tolga, go to Preferences > Performance... and check "Use Legacy Compositing" 

This will be fixed in our next major update.
