I esitmate that to handle that in RAM alone you probably need from 3 times to 5 times the file size plus maybe 40 to 50 mb for operating sytem. Check your hard disk for a) space b)defragmentation. If possible use a SCSI hard disk rather than an EIDE this speeds up things seriously. I had notice a speed increase of 30 to 40% when using PS when I put in a SCSI 3 hard disk. I suppose I could do even better if I put in a second SCSI drive and use this as the scratch disk. Alteranative if you have 2 EDIE hard disk - I do not know if 2 disks on separate EIDE bus will work similar to the SCSI disks. rgds ellery ellery Ace Cor Ent.
