Using Catalina and now Big Sur there seems to be a lot of temp files showing in Google Drive Stream in the finder all of a sudden? 

Any ideas? as you can see, this is literally a quarter of the files?

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about this. Please try saving files on Adobe Creative Cloud instead of Google Drive & let us know if you have the similar behavior there. This information will help us assist you accordingly.

What happens when you disable "Save in background" in the preferences?

Did the AI files themselves get saved correctly? In that case you don't need the temp files anymore.

 

"Save in background" allows you to carry on working in Illustrator while Illustrator is saving a file.

 

Illustrator has trouble saving directly to servers. This can even lead to file corruption. It also has trouble with certain Cloud solutions. And all this might happen to one user, but not to others. So actually nobody knows why and when it happens.

Hi there, yes the illustrator file saves correctly so no problem there so what I'll do is I'll delete all the temp files and see how I get on? Incidentally does anybody know how to search a Google Drive server in the Mac OS? Spotlight doesn't seem to want to search in it anymore for a few months now? Real pain when you're trying to find files and you're working off Google Drive for all you're working aren't work folders!
