I am editing files from my IQ180..... bringing them into CS6 and doing all of the edits on layers. I can initially save the file with its original name. I see no sense in renaming the file since edits are non destructive and its in a new folder. However, when I reopen the file and continue to edit on another layer trying to save the file with the same file name doesn't work.... I get an error message that the file is either open or in use. I must rename it to save it. Does anyone know what is going on? I have never had this happen to me in prior versions of PS.
I was getting the following message when saving in Photoshop CS6 Extended:
"Could not save "G:\...\_0008_DSCF7826.RAF.tif" because the file is already in use or was left open by
The problem occurred intermittently when saving individual files, and every time I attempted to run a batch
operation on multiple files through Bridge.
Since a huge part of my work involves batch processing files, I spent some time trying to narrow down the cause. I did 10 Batch processing test runs on twelve 100MB files. My batch process included "Save and Close" actions. I ran my batch actions through Photoshop (File>Automate>Batch), rather than through Bridge, with the following results:
The issue DID NOT occur in 10 test runs if:
1. Bridge WAS NOT running OR if
2. Bridge was running with the Performance and Handling settings for Thumbnails set to "Do Not Process
Files larger Than Zero MB" (reset from the default value of 1000MB.) I haven't tested other values yet.
The issue recurred when:
1. the "Do Not Process Files larger Than" Bridge setting was reset back to 1000 MB. closing and restarting
Bridge with these settings, and running my Batch action caused the problem to reappear by the second Save.
2. I wasn't able to successfully run any batch actions through Bridge at all.
To sum up, the issue occurred only when Bridge was running.
