TIFF Saving Process


I am seeing considerably slow saving times - up to 15x what is expected - in certain circumstances (particularly with TIFF files) and would like to know if it is possible to analyse the saving process in detail?

This is not limited by hardware and has been tested in various environments, so I am confident that this is software limited, but I would like to establish the root cause. The disk location being written to is also being managed by other software so it is very possible that something is changing/interrupting the behaviour of the saving process from Photoshop.

Many thanks for any guidance you can offer.
