Error on Saving with Xserve in Photoshop

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I am having error “Error – ‘Photoshop could not save “file” because write access was not granted’.” with my Mac OS. The error incurs while working with Xserve in Adobe Photoshop.

We have just been upgraded to CS5 and it usually happens with PSD and PSB files. I can click on the “Save As” but it will delete the file.

And sometimes it appears to have a name with AFP.

It is very frustrating.

How I can be able to fix it?

This is a issue a way back this is a problem on an Apple OS bug, it is happening by that the OS you are using is deleting the file.

I recommend that you change your Operating system to windows or change your picture editing software to another one because I don't think day want to fix this.

This problem occur many months ago but still no solution is still given by Adobe and Apple because they have estranged relationship in this past years so we don’t know when will they fix this.

Have a nice day and enjoy your stay

Before opening any .PSD or .PSB files with your Adobe Photoshop, be sure to check their file properties first since you are having a write access problem in your system. If a file is set to read-only, you really are not allowed to save any changes to this file.

But you can still save the changes that you have made using the “Save As” option. It will not overwrite the file because when you select this option you will be required to enter a new or a different name for the file.

If selecting the “Save As” option still doesn’t work for you, try uninstalling and then reinstalling the application to fix any corrupted files and restore its configurations back to default including some settings that you might have customized.

You can also check your computer for any possible errors. Use a disk utility application to check the system.

For a much thorough diagnostics on the system, use a disk utility application like PC Tools Performance Toolkit or Norton SystemWorks.
