I have a Google Drive folder where I keep some
.psd Photoshop files. The folder is set up for automatic background Google Drive sync.
When I work on a Photoshop file and save it, Google Drive starts uploading the file to the server. If I save the same file again while Google Drive is still uploading, Photoshop shows this error message:
"Could not save the file because it is already in use or left open".
It seems that the file is locked by Google Drive while it is being uploaded and Photoshop can't access it in write mode.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem (other than pausing Google Drive while working on the files)?
(1)to the original filename and then deleted the original! I've also heard that hilariously it will rename any files ending in
(N)(where N is an integer) to
(1). Google really hates the desktop. Especially Windows. Unfortunately Dropbox is more expensive.
