My file has not been modified outside of Illustrator!

I keep getting this dialog box when I try to save various files, but the documents have definitely not been modified in any other program. I'm not even renaming these files elsewhere. Does anyone know why I keep getting this message, and what I can do to stop it? I continue saving the file anyway, but it's getting irritating to keep seeing the dialog box so frequently, and it's disrupting my workflow quite a bit when it shows up multiple times throughout the course of trying to save a project.

I have had that happen to me often when opening illustrator files from a share drive on a server.

We're having the same issue after High Sierra was loaded on two different Macs. We are working on our desktop and are not using the new file system in High Sierra? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm having the same issue and my files are on DropBox. I definitely think it's an issue with High Sierra and how files are syncing. I'm not sure if your desktop is doing this or not, but Apple added a "feature" that syncs the desktop files across your devices through iCloud. So if my files are doing it with DropBox syncs and yours are doing it with a syncing desktop then that leads me to believe the files may be "touched" by the system after a save to sync them. Then Illustrator sees the file as being touched by something else and gives the error.

Paul thanks for the suggestion, but the two computers are not even signed in to ICloud. We also have the Creative Cloud Sync turned off in the preferences for Creative Cloud.  I agree that it sure looks like something in High Sierra, since we did not have this issue until this OS update. Not sure if it's Apple or Adobe's problem. If you have any other suggestions let us know.

Thank You

I read about the syncing and went into my Settings on High Sierra to uncheck "Allow Handoff between this Mac and your iCloud devices". It seems to have eliminated the warning message so far. I have this irritating message on my iMac at home too so I will test this solution tonight. Hope this helps others.Screen Shot 2018-01-02 at 10.48.38 AM.png

This happens to me with every illustrator file ever since I upgraded to High Sierra. Annoying.

My files are all local, and definitely not modified outside of Illustrator.

Just upgraded to High Sierra today (v10.13.2) thinking there had been enough time to work things out, and having the same issue. It's giving the error on my iMac with a Fusion drive, interestingly, I've been running HS on my laptop as a test since it came out and I don't get the issue. The MacBook has an SSD using APFS.

Interestingly enough, closed out the file, restarted Illustrator and started working. Initial save did not produce the error, subsequent saves cause the error to pop up.

Another difference between my iMac (which has the error) and my MacBook (which does not), I installed High Sierra from scratch on the MBP, the iMac was an upgrade from Sierra.
