I am running Photoshop 10 on a macbook, with an nfs mount to a very large raid array running Linux. I have all my pictures on the Raid array for storage. Photoshop Elements will open the file on NFS monted volume, but will not write the results to the nfs mounted volume. I have to save to the local drive and copy the file back to nfs mounted volume. This is very time consuming and frustrating.

Which MacOS version?

What happens when you try to save to the NFS volume?

Also, Photoshop doesn't know about the file system implementation -- it just calls standard OS routines for file IO. But we do know of several OS bugs related to working with file sharing volumes.

What is the full, and exact message?

Does it say the file is locked, or does it say the file is locked or in use by another process?

Could not sav a copy as "DSC_172_edited-5-copy.psd" because the file is locked. Use the "Get Info' command in the finder window to unlock the file.
