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,
Have this problem.
I also save my files to Google Drive File Stream; 184.108.40.206
I understand that you think you fixed this in 24.0.2, so I should update.
But based on a comment below that mentions the issue persisting even after they updated, and them also using Google Drive File Stream, I'm wondering if that's the issue.

Once I save a file in Illustrator (FILE>SAVE) and try to close the file the message pops up "If you don't save, your changes will be lost." And the option to save again comes up. What's going on?
See attached screenshot.
Using version 24.0.3

I get this error. Illustrator 24.0.3
MacOS 10.15.3 (19D76)
Saving files to Google Drive File Stream v36.0
Still getting this error in 24.0.3. Really would like it to stop.
Still an issue on 24.0.3. It's almost become a part of my workflow, that extra click. Please fix this!
I'm still getting this in 24.0.3.
C'mon Adobe get it together!!
I'm having the exact same issue on a regular basis since updating to 24.0.02 on mac.
I just recently updated to 24.0.02 on a PC and I received this pop-up.
when i save my file (cc2020) to cs5 so that my friend can open it, 1 of my artboard suddenly become a image, not a vector, like it has been resterized. can you help me?
I have the same problem. When will this issue be fixed??? Every time I save, I get that popup. Using Illustrator 24.0.1 and there's no CC says I'm up to date.
It happens to me once my newly created document is backed up to the "cloud." Once it is backed up the warning message appears, each and every time.

I keep getting "this file was modified outside Illustrator" when it clearly was not.
Also, Illustrator app quits after saving an Illustrator file. Almost every time.
I have to keep re-opening Illustrator 24.0.2.

Hey admin, any word on when this might ACTUALLY be fixed
Still receiving the same message... very annoying!! Please resolve and notify all users as to the remedy.

This bug HAS NOT been fixed with the version 24.0.1 update. It is not as frequent but has reappeared and Illustrator has crashed on save immediately after the error appeared.
Still got this problem since I updated to MacOS Catalina.
I'm working on a Server.
This Bug is very frustrating!!
Mel Hogan commented
Nope, not fixed. Still getting this error.
I'm working with version 24.0.1 and I'm still having this problem, and it's extremely slow to save files and crashes when sending to print
Same issue here!
Get the warning when working on a file from a server/network file AND from files living on desktop.
