This file has been modified outside illustrator
After updating to Illustrator 24.0, sometimes when saving a file, I get a popup that says 'this file has been modified outside illustrator. do you want to continue?'
We hope this season ends on a joyful note and continues into a safe and prosperous New Year for you and your family.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2020.
We have tried to address this issue in our beta build of 24.0.2.
Please visit adobe.ly/1o2SDsg and get the latest build for version 24.0.2 (Build 1).
Please do let us know if this issue is resolved for you or not.
With Best Regards,
Still getting it in v 27.0.1. EYEROLL
It's Baaaaack! I can reproduce it reliably when I Save As and then edit the new file.
Illustrator 26.3.1, Monterey 12.4, Mac Studio.

Still getting this error. MacBook Air M1, Monterey (12.0.1), Illustrator 26.0. Saving to Google Drive.
Still happening. Any update?
Still happening in version 25.4.1 ☹️
The issue still persists in version 25.3.1.
Files saved to Microsoft OneDrive (Mac version).
When the file is moved outside of OneDrive there is no alert message.
This is EXTREMELY annoying and counterproductive!
Macbook Pro Big Sore 11.4
I still get this alert on an 2019 Intel MacBook Pro, Big Sur 11.4, Illustrator 25.2.3 saving to a Google Drive.
Also to add, this doesn't happen with saving direct to Dropbox or iCloud, just OneDrive.
Ended up here looking for a fix for the 'This file has been modified outside Illustrator' message.
On the current version of Illustrator 25.2.1
Mac OS 11.2.3
I only get this issue when saving to OneDrive.
Also confirming issue still exists. Using version 25.0.1 with Mac 10.15.7
Very annoying. If Adobe can't fix, please explain why.
It's back again with Illustrator 25.2.

Confirming this issue still exists. Illustrator 25.1, macOS Big Sur 11.2
I have the same issue as everybody here since I did an update (wished I didn't bothered... very annoying... It take also longer to save than usual and made plenty of space on my hard drive recently.
Could you please fix this bug?

Agreed, starting to see this constantly now after it had disappeared for a while.
I have not had this problem for a few years, but it has now reappeared. I am running Illustrator 25.0 on Mojave 10.14.6.
Hi Illustrator Team,
I've updated to the latest version 25 AI 2021. I'm stilling getting popup that says 'this file has been modified outside illustrator. do you want to continue?'
I didn't have this issue until I updated to Catalina in order to start using CC 2021. Now it happens pretty much every time I save. Thanks.
Saving to MyCloud PR2100. This is very nerving!

Yes, this still seems to be an issue for folders that are backed up to a web service (Google File Stream here.) I don't see it for files that are saved elsewhere.
