Just curious if I should install any of the "Optional Extensions" located on the Photoshop CS Mac CD.

Some of them seem very dated, or only apply to very old SCSI Manager 4.3 drives… which is kind of odd since Photoshop CS only runs on Mac OS X.

I notice that Adobe still installs by default the "Enable Async I/O" plug-in. Isn’t Async I/O built-in by now?

What about Disable Scratch Compression, Remember Slow Files, Unlimited CLipboard Size, Force VM Compression?

Async I/O can still be problematic for some drives – so we enable it, but leave the plugin there so it can be disabled.

As for the others – read the README file that goes with them and decide for yourself.
