Software: Photoshop 20
Operating System: OS X Mojave

Getting the following error message when attempting to save over an existing file on an SMB server:

Could not save "{filename}" because write access was not granted.

It is not a file permissions issue, as I have full Read & Write access for both the folder and PSD file.

In previous versions there were similar problems that could be solved by deselecting the file in Finder and attempting the save again, but that no longer works with the latest version of PS and OS X.

This sort of issue has been fixed in previous versions of Photoshop and it would be appreciated if it were fixed again for PS 20.

Things have gotten better but working off an SMB server is still a problem and still not recommended. What server software are you using?
