I switch the scratch drive of photoshop CS6 from the default setting to my Apple time capsule. After restarting photoshop it won't restart because scratch fils can't be found.
Please help!

You really should not use an external or network volume as a scratch disk.

Relaunch Photoshop, and hold down command-option-shift to reset Photoshop's preferences, which will also reset the scratch disk preference.

Launch Photoshop and hold down the [command] and [option] keys. This will let you select a local hard drive.
