comment Can't save a Photoshop file on a Mac while Google Drive is syncing
Thanks for you answer. I've already tried option 1, which is what I am currently doing (actually pausing Google Drive synchronization while I work on my projects and than re-activating it when I'm done), but I didn't know about Timeline.

comment Can't save a Photoshop file on a Mac while Google Drive is syncing
@Ramhound well, I think my use case is not so weird. If Google Drive appears as a normal system folder, one is allowed to modify files in there from time to time. This might be done opening the file with an application and saving it multiple times. I think this problem could have been mitigated locking the file for a very short time to make a temporary local copy on disk, releasing the original one and than reading the temp copy to upload it to the server, instead of locking the original file for the entire duration of the upload.
