When I save the file in Photoshop 2020 (v.21.0.1, Windows), the progress indicator quickly goes to 99% and then it stays a long time before the file is saved.

The saving time is the same as in the 2019 version, the progress indicator only works badly.

When I turn off save in background then the progress bar works correctly.

Are you saving locally (e.g. to the desktop) or to an external drive or server?

Locally no matter on which drive. In Photoshop 2019 it worked without issues.

Yeah I have the same problem. It is stuck on 99% and it took really a long time.
This project I'm saving on external drive.

Are you using a version of Photoshop from Adobe.com or another source? I'm not seeing active accounts under either of your email addresses.

I have a version from the school that I teach. You can check under Zavod AI or Matej Hrček as administrator

I have the same problem.  My copy is from Adobe (21.0.1).  Mostly does the 99% thing but randomly and infrequently reverts to the correct indication upon saving.

I am saving to an attached SSD.  If I turn off Save in Background, then the progress bar shows front and center and behaves normally.  So, it is only when Save in the background has been selected and the progress indicator is on the bottom bar that it misbehaves.

I have a similar problem where the save progress remains unchanged but only while a menu is open or had been clicked on (like File menu). While you keep this menu open the progress of the save will not complete. When you close the menu the progress indicator will complete on cue.
