    Photoshop & HUGE files

    does anyone know how to restrict filesizes on photoshop .psd files in the registry?

    our old servers arent what they used to be and are literally on the last gig of space (awaiting CC4 servers to go live atm, but aint got a clue how long ill be waiting) so in the meantime, is there any registry entries i can create to stop photoshop from crippling my fileserver with 400mb+ files?

    cheers

    Set user quotas? Stops users also having any large files not just in photoshop.

    Mm, there's not likely to be a way to restrict that just for Photoshop. Not without 3rd party software anyway. Setting user quotas, or reducing existing quotas would be the way to go.

    If I find really big files sometimes I will manually move them to a separate public share somewhere and create a shortcut in the users area. It can free up alot of space in an emergency.

    Otherwise just enforce some quotas
