So i was rendering in after effects, when it said something like this "no available cache memory" so i checked my OS ssd and it said 500mb left of 60gb...
i uninstalled some programs that i don't use and did something called disc cleanup (right click on the drive and something with cleanup) it said it could save me 4gb, and when that was done nothing happened I did it again and it said it could save up to 6gb. i let the problem go over the night and when i started the computer the following day it said 19gb of available space left... which is the amount that windows said it could save with the cleanup. But now when my power went of all of a sudden I now notice it says 21.1gb free, why did the amount of available storage on the ssd go up? is something wrong i haven't done anything... i have two more Hdds (500gb and 250gb). I dont know whats wrong or if anything is even wrong, or i am just seeing things, I do know that i am going to buy a 120gb ssd, so i dont need to worry this much on my ssd storage/memory, which will be nice! if you have an answer pleas do tell! :) 

* Windows 8 - 64bit
* amd 8320
* gigabyte radeon 7870
* 8 gigs of ram
* 500gb and 250gb Hdds
* 60gb and soon 120gb Ssd

with photoshop or video editing software...change the scratch/data drive to your hard drive. if not doing a larger render will fill up the ssd and cause that error.

Well thank you! I changed the destination folder of three things (in the media & cache folder), so i hope this solved my problem! :)
