Photoshop CS6 not saving to server

I cannot save my .psd files to the server from photoshop, neither save or save-as. Save for web works just fine. When I try to save I get this error message:

Could not save as “X.psd” because the file is locked, you do not have necessary access permissions, or another program is using the file. Use the ‘Get Info’ command in the Finder to ensure the file is unlocked and you have permission to access the file. If the problem persists, save the document to a different file or duplicate it in the Finder.

I know for sure that I have unlocked permissions and no one else is using the file.

I'm running Adobe Design Premium for CS6 on a retina mac book pro iOS 10.7.4

Note: Photoshop does not officially support saving to servers, because there are many problems with servers and networks outside our control.

The error means that you have a permissions problem on the server, another process accessing the file on the server, or a known MacOS bug with saving files to a server (Apple is still working on it, and in CS6 we tried really hard to work around it).

Save For Web does less error checking in the area that fails on the server (we know, we just haven't gotten it updated yet).

Check the permissions on the whole server (root level downward) to make sure you have correct permissions.

Make sure no other process is accessing that folder at the time you are trying to save.

And if that doesn't solve it -- then it's probably the MacOS bug and you'll need to save locally then copy to the server.

Then why when the error occurs can you save it fine to a server using PS5??

Also, I'm wondering if a font program is somehow interferring with saving to the server as I read all the font programs currently don't work in PS6 with auto activation.

Because doing the same test in another users account using Fast Switching allows it to save to the server. That account is not using a Font program.

However, just closing all your fonts in the PS6 test doesn't allow it to save until you restart.

In any case, PS5 works fine every time.... hmmmm

On MacOS, there are known OS bugs with saving to SMB servers (which just got worse in 10.8).

This happens with Photoshop CS5 and CS6, due to a bug in an OS API used by Photoshop.

These are 10.6 clients saving to 10.6 AFP Servers.

The issues doesn't happen in PS5, except for that rare occassion when someone else in the folder where the file resides but in PS5 you can ALWAYS do a save as. In PS6, that doesn't work. There is no way to save it to the server when it happens in PS6. You have to save to the desktop.

Nothing else changed in the setups on either end, client or server, except CS6 was added.

Having the exact same issue here.  10.6.x clients connecting to AFP server.  Only change is from CS5 to CS6 and can no longer save Photoshop files directly to the server.

Try turning off the saving of Image Previews in the File Handling preferences.  Not a Mac user myself, but it seems to me I read that can help work around the issue.

Thanks for that tip Noel and bwithay88 thanks for adding that you have the same problem.

Wondering why no follow-up from Chris Cox after my reply that issue only happened when moving from CS5 to CS6?

I'll have some users test turning off saving Image Previews.... let you know results....

It's very interesting that disabling Image Previews (icons) in Preferences > File Handling works around a problem which appeared with Ps CS6.

I discovered that the icons attached to Ps CS6 files are different to the icons attached to CS5.1 files (I don't have earlier versions of Ps). The CS6 icons are counter to Apple's software development guidelines. Compliant icons may somehow avoid some incorrect networking code from being run.

See http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1008694?start=67 from the point shown in this image

Disabling previews just makes it happen less often, it won't solve the underlying OS bug.

You get the error message more often in CS6 because CS6 added more error checking for the known OS bugs.

The CS6 icons are exactly as Apple requested them.

Apple are publicly advising developers to use application and document icons which contain a pyramid of images from 16 x 16  to 1024 x 1024 pixels, the largest size being intended for Retina displays.

You have stated in another thread that the Photoshop CS6 change from previously-compliant icons of CS5 to new less-useful and non-compliant icons is because Apple requested the change in preparation for Retina.

The request is clearly illogical, therefore there seems a high probability of a communication error between Apple and Adobe, or a mistake by someone at Apple or by someone at Adobe.

Will the icons in the next Ps update be compliant with Apple's public guidelines?

https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/AppleHIGuidelines/I...

Extract:

Provide a set of document icons in the same set of sizes you provide for your app icon. For the recommended standard- and high-resolution sizes, see Table 5-1.

As you do with your app icons, create an .icns file for your document icons. To learn more about how to create this type of file, see “Tips for Designing Icons.”

Are these known OS bugs in 10.7 and 10.8? Client or server OS?

Adobe and Apple have to work this out. It's way too many years and now worse. At least with CS5 when it rarely happened you could do a Save As to the server.

No way you will get design firms to save locally. It won't happen on a grand scale. My clients purchased CS6 and now have reverted to using PS CS5. I can tell you Chris no matter how much Adobe says it is Apple's fault they won't accept it. They will find another solution, like not upgrading anymore or using another vendor.

That is not what Apple told us. Again, we are doing what they requested of us.

The bugs are in MacOS 10.6 and 10.7, but somehow 10.8 made things worse.

We are investigating the problem (not just waiting for Apple to fix it).

We are having the same issue here, though some users can save fine and others can't. There is enough hardware and software differences between us to eliminate just one OS version or hardware setup as the cause (mac 10.7 and 10.8 being used on imacs and mac pros) and enough similarities (same os and same software on the same hardware systems and some can't save and others can) to be very confusing. We are saving the files on an older Mac server (OS 10.4 on powerPC xserve) and Photoshop CS5 saved them just fine. We are all running the same font software, so I don't think that is it. I did try to turn off the image previews for a user that can't save and it didn't seem to help. Hope it can be fixed soon by someone.

I've done this on my server, I gave read-write access to the hidden folder .TemporaryItems and now everything is working as before

It looks like Photoshop CS6 is creating this folder, but I'm not sure.

That's an OS folder, used by the OS and applications for temporary item storage -- and it should be writable by all users.

Some applications, like Adobe and Microsoft Office use this folder as a temporary location when saving. If the permissions don't allow writing to this, saving in Photoshop CS6 fails. Other CS software just seems to ignore it and save directly. Even Photoshop CS6 doesn't require it if it's deleted and permissions changed to deny creation of a new one.

In this folder a subfolder corresponding to each user gets created with the user's UID appended to the folder name, for example 'folders.501'. In my opinion using this system is a poor design choice because if directory service is not used there could be conflicts when several users might have the same user ID. This was a real problem a few years back with Office 2004.

Thank you for the information.

Even if now my user can save Photoshop CS6 on my server after I change the permission of the root network folder ".TemporaryItems", I will give your advice a try, remove this temporary folder and see what's happen.

If somethings goes wrong I could just recreate the folder

Ok, now we are getting somewhere. This sounds like a great starting point to troubleshoot this problem.

Chris, can you please comment on whether or not a problem with permissions on the .TemporaryItems folder could cause the "could not save due to a program error" problem.

Can anyone say whether the .TemporaryItems folder is specific to AFP server connections or is it also used when saving via SMB?

Found this link while poking around for some information relating to the .TemporaryItems folder

http://prowiki.isc.upenn.edu/wiki/MS_Office_and_Network_Volumes

Some of the suggestions here sound like they could show some promise as the related error sounds all too familiar.

After the holiday, I'll be doing some testing and will post back what I find.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

A little status of my experience:

If the folder .TemporaryItems exist in the root share network Photoshop CS6 will use it and create a folder in it like folder.xxx and you get the trouble.

I've now removed the .TemporaryItems folder.

The .TemporaryItems folder is not recreated by Photoshop CS6 or other programs and everything is working like a charm.

I just tried this. Removed the .Temporaryitems folder. Started up one of my clients Photoshop CS6. Opened a job on the server, made some quick changes and did a save as to another location. The folder recreated itself and inside is a folders.502 which is showing r/w permissions only for the user I just used CS6 on. I propogated permission from the top down to give r/w to the group as well. Perhaps this will make some difference??

Or am I better off locking the .Temporaryitems folder so nobody can use it?

Client is 10.6.8

Server is 10.6.8 afp

Well, my users doesn't have write permission on the root network folder, so photoshop CS6 cannot recreate the .TemporaryItems folder.

I have 60+ users and no saving problems anymore for photoshop CS6 for my users after I deleted the .TemporaryItems folder.

The clients are very differents, from 10.5.x to 10.8.2

The server is 10.6.7 afp

So where does it create the temp file if the .TemporaryItems folder does not exist and it can not recreate it?

Does it just revert back to CS5 behavior of saving directly over the file?

This seems like a dangerous solution. I don't want to crosspost too much so take a look at my assessment of the situation so far over here. And I am well aware that these may be different issues, but they seem to have this directory problem in common...

http://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/cs6_photoshop_saving_issues

I've taken the information I've learned from here and done some analysis through testing. I have not however tried preventing users from recreating the .TemporaryItems folder.

We are having this same issue and I have disussed this on other similar threads. Keeps coming back to the same things to try and no solution. One thing I did find is that the problem does not occur when saving to a file server with SMB. However, when saving through SMB, periodically I was getting a message that said something like, "The saved file was modified since the last time it was saved, all changes will be lost. Are you sure you want to save". It still let me save and I was able to go on with my business. I'd say that message appeared about as often as the AFP realated program error. So it makes me wonder if they are related. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Those are separate bugs.

Apple believes they have solved the primary problem in MacOS 10.8, but they have not solved the file modification date issue (which has to happen outside of Photoshop).

The primary problem discussed in this topic is a program error when saving to a file server on MacOS 10.8, due to a bug introduced in 10.8.  That was fixed in 10.8.2 (though we're also adding more safety code on our side as well).

Again, you mentioned 2 problems (same issue as topic, plus the timestamp change).

Hello Chris,

Me and a collegue are facing the same issue as topic starter JenniRLeder. We are both running Photoshop CS6 on Mac OS X 10.8.2.

However, you say that the issue is fixed in OS X 10.8.2, is this correct as we are still having this problem? I was not able to find a fix or workaround.

I hope you could help me with a solution for this issue!

We are also getting the error below when saving to our NAS. Saving to our local harddrive is no problem.

Could not save as “X.psd” because the file is locked, you do not have necessary access permissions, or another program is using the file. Use the ‘Get Info’ command in the Finder to ensure the file is unlocked and you have permission to access the file. If the problem persists, save the document to a different file or duplicate it in the Finder.

Everything was fine when we used Photoshop CS4. We used it with a lower OS X version though and updated both at the same time. We did not encoutered the problem with any other program so far.

Hope to hear from you.

Access to the .TemporaryItems folder is just part of the issue. Are you also using unique UIDs for every machine? Active or Open Directory?

Or manually managing them? If not, you will also run into an issue where the TemporaryItems subfolder will get removed upon logout.

Can you give more information on the structure of your network? We are testing moving our environment to Active directory in order to establish unique UIDs to avoid collisions in the .TemporaryItems folder. So far, all tests are positive. I have isolated a single machine to have a unique UID and access to the .TemporaryItems folder and so far no issues.

Hi Scottgriz,

Unfortunately, my network knowledge is not that good (yet). We have an AFP share running on a netgear NAS. We (3 users) all connect with the same password, if that's what you mean. Haven't noticed any other problems so far.

Does that help you?

Is there any update on this?  I have been told that the common recommendation is to upgrade to 10.8, but this is not something we've considered in our budget.

What can my users do if we don't upgrade?

Hi there,

Thanks to Chris and Scott for shedding some light on this matter. I am seeing same issue (have been for some time now and utilising the save to desktop workaround). I can confirm it is only since the CS6 upgrade and only over AFP (ExtremeZip) connections to a server share.

My users have now discovered the false disconnect method and are using that: Go to finder, attempt to disconnect from the shared volume (it won't let you), go back to photoshop and save to share.

Is there any update from Chris/Adobe on when a 'proper' solution is likely to be forthcoming?

Many thanks for all the work so far.

Liam

I have just done major updates on Mac OS to 10.8.x along with the Adobe CS6 suite... Previously on Snow Leopard and CS3, along with otehr competitor software and occasionally noticed a problem saving to the server. Along with this also ejecting a falsh drive or SDcard. This may be way too simple a try or stab at this. Recently suffering terribly with this newest of "Save to Server" problems with CS6 and with a file open as I write this... tried to open/edit old CS3 PSD residing on server. Upon closing and save command, experienced this thread problem. In past with similar issues wtih other files and programs... I find that the desktop directory "VIEW" in the 3 column with last being full thumbnail might be the culprit. In this case (with current problem file not saving to server still open) I changed the view of the server directory to LIST.

Go back to open PSD, close... do youwant to save, yes.... BAMMM it saved fine back to the server. Maybe some of the more technical users might shed any light on the directory use of the preview/icons on the server directories? Let me know if anyone finds this actually works for them.

Add me to the list for this thread problem and I hoe Apple or Adobe find teh fix. It's a pain saving to desktop as a workaround... left with so many duplicate files to manage.

In that case it would be the OS holding the file open or trying to read the file while it is being saved, because it is trying to display a preview and some metadata in the finder panel.

Any development on this issue? I see it's been a couple of months since anyone commented.

Photoshop CC 14.0 and 14.1 contain quite a few improvements to make saving to a server safer.

(mostly working around the OS bugs)

I'm suffering from these problems now, running Yosemite with CS6. A few of my users cannot save anything, anywhere.

After spending lots of time trying to get Photoshop to save to our network server, glad to have found this thread. Before I share some findings, can anyone confirm if updating to the latest cloud versions of Photoshop solve this issue? I've already made sure the permissions were set for everyone to access the temporary folder mentioned above. Next step is to delete it and see what happens.

We are using Photoshop CS 5.1, Version 12.1 x64. I believe this is the most up to date version of our CS5.1 software.

We are on OS X Yosemite Version 10.10.3.


When connected to the server via afp (in server log it says "AFP client")

Photoshop gives this error on a save after some changes are made to the file: "Could not save "file name" because write access was not granted." Then, as soon as you hit ok, the file is deleted from the server and is gone within a minute or so. If no change was made to the file, save works fine.

If you use "save as" and keep the same file name, it will usually fail with the same error as above. If you use save as and type in a new file name, all works fine.

If logged in via SMB (in the server log is says "CIFS client")

When you try to save, the error changes to "could not save "file name" because the file was not found." And then as soon as you hit OK on the error, the file is deleted from the server. Using Save As and inputing a different file name presented a new problem, it always says "could not save as "file name" because the file was not found." (in this case SMB seems to be worse than an AFP connection).

This is very frustrating and has been going on in the forums for over 3 years. Shared network environments are commonplace today. It seems to be centered around photoshop and OSX. All other software we use has been working fine with the server / network attached storage.


Thanks for any guidance. Sean

I would also be keen to hear if there is any development with PS Creative Cloud version to solve the saving to network issue. We are about to upgrade.

Thanks

I am having a similar problem.

From my MacPro using Photoshop CS5 I can save PSD files to my desktop, internal and external drives.

However, I cannot dave PSD files to my network server. Receive PS error: "Could not save as “xxx.psd” because write access was not granted."

I have no issue when saving other formats, such as jpeg, png, etc.

I can also "/Save for web and other devices"

I can copy a PSD file to the server using FINDER.

Appears to ONLY relate to PSD format files, being saved directly from Photoshop PS5

If I save from my MacBookPro, which is running PS 2014.2.2 (The online version) I have no issues saving a PSD file to the same server.

Any suggestions?

I am having this same issue. It started when I was using PS 5.1 and then upgraded to Mavericks. We are now on Yosemite and Photoshop CC 2015. It is still occurring. I have tried repairing disk permissions on the computer hosting the hard drive we are saving to and it did not help. I am going to try changing the Preview Save in Preferences and see if that helps. I need this issue resolved as well since we need to be able to save over a network. Chris, any suggestions?

The only remaining problems known are due to permissions on the server (configuration), or bugs in the file server itself.
