Mac storage issue on photoshop when using a server

I am using the latest version of Photoshop CC (on mac) and keep having storage issues when working on multiple files. However, the odd thing is this is mainly when the files I am working on are saved to our server, rather than locally to the machine. If saved to desktop this is not such an issue. Has anyone else experienced this, is there anything that can be changed within adobe settings to help this problem?

Thanks!

A Save is a complex operation that involves local temp storage in parallel with the destination storage. This is exactly the kind of problems you can expect when saving directly to server, and why it is warned against by everyone, including officially by Adobe. It is simply not a recommended way to work and you're on your own. There's no way Adobe can control the multitude of server configurations out there.

What happens when you try to save to the server?

Officially Adobe does not support working directly to/from network servers or cloud synced solutions.

Mac OS Finder causes issues locking up files saying they are in use or worse, corrupting them.

Work local, drag over to share or backup.

What do you mean by storage issue? Are you getting any error messages or notifications? What exactly do they say?

 

Note that working directly off a server (opening and saving directly) is not supported by Adobe, strongly advised against, and generally asking for trouble. Work locally, then copy over.

Thanks for the responses - to confirm, the issue is not about being able to save to our server, which tends to work fine, but that operationally the programme becomes slow and the storage on the mac itself gets eaten up completely, in a way that does not happen when the file is saved to desktop. Is there a specific reason for this or workaround where we can still work off our server directly?
