Can't do changes to the containing folder - gude
A text file named "gude<current date>" is created in the destination folder. Can't do changes to the containing folder.

Happens to me with Photoshop also. Started when I upgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 11.
Adobe, please FIX it and make a statement here. THANK YOU
(Also in Photoshop too)
There are multiple threads on multiple forums regarding gude file issues, going back more than a year. Seems to affect AI and PS the most.
Some people have found workarounds. Many have not. Adobe doesn't show any signs of caring one iota.
Good luck out there.
******* Adobe, fix things, not break them when you do updates!!

For the same problem in Photoshop, downgrading to version 24.0.1 fixed the issue for me. Also, the problem reportedly happens when double-clicking to open a file in Windows File Explorer, and not when opening a file from inside Photoshop or Bridge. See https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-bugs/p-photoshop-gude-log-created-when-working-with-files/idi-p/12878831.
Super annoying. Appears to affect Photoshop as well.

Happening to me, too in Photoshop as well. Began this week, appears to happen with psd files that I have downloaded from my web browser (I teach a class with illustration, and the homework files are submitted through a course website).
I have not had the gude files appear when opening older files psd files that originated on my own computer.

Previous thread marked as fixed... But not fixed at all:
Community seems to be pretty frustrated about this issue that has been ongoing for a while now. True in Photoshop and Illustrator...
Messes up all cloud sync whichever the cloud sync provider might be. The workaround provided in the other thread is not working at all. Please fix this !

GUDE<data>.log files are created in the folder with the AI file.
Same problem here, with Illustrator only. Started generating gude files and random png files about a month ago. Updated Illustrator and it still does it. I can delete them after Illustrator is closed some of the time. After a hard boot, I can delete them about 95% of the time (PC — MSI Creator 17)
This is not only a problem with Illustrator, but with Photoshop as well! Each time I open an image, which I use in Adobe Captivate, publishing from Captivate is impossible. I have to quit Photoshop/Illustrator first. That´s annoying and extremly slowing my work performance!
Same bug for me, for months, when you paste copy/paste a linked file inside illustrator, it duplicate imagem name on links panel, and for each placed image inside illustrator, a file is created on folder where the AI file is:
For each copied image inside AI file, a new 0kb png is created :(
But in last updates, a folder and a temp file are created :(
probabbly this bug is tied to this "gude" bug
I having the same issue here. I am running my Adobe Suite on Windows 11. It seems to be present since I upgraded to this version of Windows.
A small notepad file gets created almost every time I use Photoshop or Illustrator.
Before I manage to unlock it, I am unable to open it it just shows in red: I/O error

Annoying extra files are being created for no reason. This is happening on local and network file locations. It happens if I use the "export for screens" function.
