NSData writeToFile method returns true but file is not written to the disk

I have developed an OS X app and I sometimes need to save some pictures on the disk. I have a method to do that :

func saveImageAtPath(image: NSImage, path: String)
if let data = image.TIFFRepresentation
let bitmap = NSBitmapImageRep(data: data)
let pngImage = bitmap?.representationUsingType(NSBitmapImageFileType.NSPNGFileType, properties: [:])

NSLog("Path : %@", path)

if let _ = pngImage?.writeToFile(path, atomically: false)
NSLog("Everything should work...")

When I try to save an image, everything seems to work, the following text is displayed in the console :

Path :

Everything should work...

Everything was working perfectly a month ago.
Here is my conf :

OS X Yosemite 10.10.5
Xcode 7.2

If anyone has an idea... That'd be great !

Thanks in advance.


I spent all day trying to figure out how to code up the suggested fix in swift 2.0 , so I wanted to share now that I have it working

    let result = try Bool(pngImage!.writeToFile(filePath, options: NSDataWritingOptions.DataWritingAtomic))
catch let error as NSError {

I hope that saves someone some time.
