      There was is currently a "Discussion" in the PS Forum on this only it refers to InDesign.

      I can confirm this behaviour using Illusttrator. Is a way to disable Photoshop from opening two files with the same name?

      I realize this could be a useful feature to some, however in certain workflows this is annoying.

      Test this:

      Open Photoshop.

      Create a quick file.

      Save on desktop.

      Do not close the PS file.

      Open Illustrator and place your PS file.

      Now "option double click" the placed image in Illustrator to edit original.

      BANG. You now have two identical PS files open.
