PS file saving extra step box

The latest PS vs is driving me nuts.  When I go to save a file whether I save as a .psd and close or whether I safe as a flattened jpg file, or a .psd as a jpg I get a box asking me if I want to save changes to .ARW file.  See attachment.  I did a save and it just does a .psd file.  I did a cancel and I can't tell it does anything.  I'm also attaching an image of my "file handling" settings.  I think I have your latest recommendations.  Thanks!

No I'm not saving as a copy. Or at least I don't think so!

You must be.  The behaviour you're describing is exactly what happens when you save as a copy.

You're right.  When I go to "Save as" the "copy" box ALWAYS has a check in it.  How do I get rid of that default?  I never had it before. If I do a "save" the copy box is unchecked.  I've always done "save as".

Then I don't know, sorry :(  If it's not bit depth and it's not layers, I don't know why it's doing it.

Maybe you need to reset PS's preferences?

I reset the preferences and didn't change it other than now it is checked whether I do a .psd or a .jpg

I fixed it!  I think it must have been a combination of two things.  Resetting preferences fixed the issue using file/save as but my shortcut key was still saving "save as a copy".  I reset my shortcut key and now it "appears" to be working properly.
