In Photoshop, I get the message ?scratch disk is full?

Photoshop requires huge amounts of RAM, and when it discovers it has used up all the memory, it creates a clever 'swap' space on your hard disk, using this as a 'virtual' RAM. Data is then shuttled back and forth between actual RAM and this 'scratch' disk. However, should your hard disk have no free space, Photoshop can no longer work.
