Since about two months, after an update, when I save my TIFF files, when ready retouching it, it became ridiculously slow. Saving stands at 99% for a minute or so, it takes minutes to save even a small 150-300mb, 8 bit files too! Now I tried to go with PSD format - I jump from LR to PS to retouch my portraits -, and it is as quick, as it was before, a few seconds. 

Why it is so slow to save in TIFF? Compression also on with PSD! I didn't change any settings in a long time, and it became slow, don't know why.

I work on Mac, up-to-date PS, 21.2.1.

I suffer from the same issue. I don't recall it starting until after updated to 21.2.1 last week. It just took 2 min 45 seconds to save a file I'd consider mid-sized to my internal SSD. The progress bar slowly creeping along. However, I have experienced progress remaining on 99% for quite some time more than once on past saves. The document size shown in the lower-left is 146.3M/592.8M. In comparision, many of the files I save are well over 1 GB and used to save in less than 15 seconds. It does not occur everytime, but enough to frustrate me when it does.

I am working with some very large files and saving a TIFF the same size in Photoshop can take 1-3 minutes while in Illustrator will take 20 minutes or crash before it finishes. I have 64G of RAM and Illustrator floors it while saving, and in Photoshop, I can continue working on other files while it saves... What's the deal? Is there a better way to save TIFFs from Illustrator?

I don't know, I don't use Illustrator. But the issue is still exist. I shifted to PSDs, its saving quicker, but no zipping. Maybe that is the problem now. But this long time to save a tiff file is ridicolous, and still no answer or reaction from Adobe! :-((
