Again, if this is a Mac connecting to a Windows server
Don’t do any of this without your IT support people’s approval.
Go>Connect to Server
try changing the address to SMB://
If that doesn’t work, and it didn’t for us after one of the recent updates,
That’s what we are having to use now.
Keep an eye on it for a bit. The only issue we have is the mac really doesn’t like working with really large image links over the server network, and re-saves seemed slower but I might be biased due to the large file nature of my work. Usually I drag my work onto my local desktop anyway, just because it is faster.
BTW, this all has to do with the mac leaving invisible .ds_store files laying around. The server won’t let you delete or change anything if it sees the folder/file “still in use.”
There is another workaround using Terminal to stop the Mac from writing invisible files, but we found that didn’t work for very long. Not sure why that is.
More info on that in this archived article.
I DO NOT KNOW IF THIS HACK WILL STILL WORK ON THE LATEST OS. Use at own risk.
