Currently we’ve got a network folder where 10 graphic designers save their work. We use this drive to open the files, work on them and save them one by one. More often than not, our files become corrupt and can no longer open in Illustrator. We have a feeling it’s the network drive at fault, and perhaps two or more people trying to access the same file at times, with network latencies and race conditions in creation of lock files etc. How best can we go about sharing our work with others without having to run into this issue? Is there a Git style tool for designers? Will creative cloud / collaboration help in our case? Any other suggestions?
Edit: My question is largely around avoidance of file-corruption, that seems to occur more often than not, due to perhaps the
lock file not being saved or read by one machine in time, before it overwrites an existing lock. I have read Adobe's recommendation on this and they advise against using network-drives, yet this seems to be common practice at several organizations. I'm looking for more of a solution for not just being able to share work across machines, but more specifically, ensuring that the work does not end up corrupt and is following perhaps some unspoken common practice amongst other designers.
