I've been told that I shouldn't edit Adobe product files directly off of a server. At my previous job we did have problems with files becoming corrupted (inDesign in particular) when we used this editing method, so we were told to edit the files locally and then resave onto the server. However, at my new job, the IT department is a bit more savvy and I have yet to see many hiccups with our server. Other employees work directly off of the server and don't seem to have any real problems. What do you all suggest? What are the pros and cons to working directly off the server and working locally then resaving?
Lots of users do it without a problem.
Basically, it works fine until it doesn't. Make sure you have a good backup chain in case of trouble.
