    Why does PS CS5 (12.0.4) write to original file when I 'save as copy'?

      Here's the scoop: I open a PS file. I chose 'Save As' but uncheck 'Show Layers' in the dialog box. So now it's essentially a 'Save A Copy'. When the new file is saved the original file is written to (although nothing changed) and now has the same modification date as the 'Save A Copy' file. Super strange and causing issues. Because if one flattens or does anything to the original file, those changes are baked into the original file!


      Any ideas? Thanks, in advance.
