Suddenly my psd file names have "working" added and are huge

In CC.

I was working on a large multi-layered image. I must have changed something in the "save" command, as all my files are now saved as "current filename" + working + another file name(same in each case) , and are all 137 MB large.

No idea what has done this....

Not sure about the naming issue but the 137mb file size isn't that large if you're working on psd files that are layered. I've had 500mb files on images.

Are you using a plug in of some sort? It may well be that it needs to create a new working copy of the image for some reason. Sometimes you then get a temp working file that doesn't get deleted when you close the application, often because the program hasn't shut down cleanly.
