Using Windows 10 64bit and Photoshop CC 2020 v21.1.0.106

Open JPG, unlock layer and create a copy. After that:

File>Save as PSD (CTRL+S)

After that I want to use previously created action that will SAVE AS JPG with specific dimensions and in specific folder (different then source folder). I get error message that i can not save that file.

Hi there, interesting for sure. I just tried it and did not get a problem, but will admit I did a high level test. In the Action I opened the jpg file, changed the dimensions (width, height and resolution), then saved it into a different subdirectory from where is was originally filed. I tried it again with a different jpg from a totally different original subdirectory and it worked again. 

I used some crazy dimensions  to be sure and did that first. And in the action I did not close the file, but the PSD file was created. Oh, and I did not have a layer to unlock. 

Try it again, take a deep breath, you'll get it for sure! Good Luck! Kit

With ver21.1,the same phenomenon occurs after saving by overwriting jpg too.
This problem does not occur with ver20.0.5 in my another computer.
I think this is probably a simple bug where the memory where the path information is stored is not updated.

I have the same problem, detailed here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop/photoshop-2020-batch-filename-issue/m-p/10948029?page=1#M309831

And in the process of rolling back a version creative cloud installer obliterated by PS2020 prefs.  So *heads up* if you roll back a version back up your prefs first.

21.1 seems like a disaster.
