I work with Photoshop all the time. This makes it particularly annoying when, for weeks on end, it kept auto-recovering an old PSB file I was working on, no matter how many times I closed (or saved) it.
The solution is actually quite simple and obvious:
Simply right click on the PSB file and select Reveal in Finder:
Now take that file (or if there’s more than one, all of them) and delete them. It should be fixed. Let me know if this worked for you!
Thank you so much!
You’re welcome, Joe!
It works well, thank you
Happy to help!
Thank you :D
OMG! thanks so much! It was driving me CRAZY!!!
Haha, so glad you’re back to a sane place again. Cheers!
.psb auto recovery really annoying, thank you for help me fixing this problem.
Happy to help!
Thank you SO much. This was driving me insane.
Really happy to hear it helped!
So simple yet so frustrating. This has been driving me nuts for over 3 weeks. Thanks for the tip :)
Glad it also worked for you, Greg! It drove me up the walls too. Cheers!
wow! that was simple.. I lived with this way too long!
Hah, really glad that you found it useful!
Thank you so much!!
Happy to help, Gustavo!
Quite simple but not obvious even to someone who has used Macs for more than 30 years. I never think of “right clicking” on anything. Thanks a lot! This is probably an old post from you but I hadn’t seen the problem until recently.
So happy that it helped!
I’m using windows and the option is grayed out… anyone help? This is really annoying me and now there is a second file stuck in “recovery” – _ -‘
You’re a star.
So happy this still works/helps people out!
After days of trying to figure this out…Thank you!!
Hah, so happy this still worked! Cheers!
Thanks I have been needing this, my computer has like 20 or more and I forgot how to do it!
Thanks for letting me know that it’s still helping people, Nikki! All the best!
