I was recently working on a photograph and I had no issues with the file until I saved it and closed Affinity. When I came back to open it to continue working on it, it crashes after loading about 30% of the file leaving me with a message saying "The document appears to be corrupted n\n\The document must now be closed ". Any way I can recover the file? 

The file size is over 1 gb so I cant attach the file here.

 

So this isn't the first time it has happened. I have noticed this happens to my files when they exceed 1 gb. 

 

My hardware is more than capable.  I run a maxed out Alienware M17 R2

Hi SpaceBound and Welcome to the Forums,

We would really need a copy of the .afphoto file to see if can be recovered.  I can create you a Dropbox link to upload the file to but as it's 1GB that might not be feasible depending on your internet connection.

I redid the work. Thank you for reaching out. My temporary solution is to delete the layers as I go. This is not ideal however, do to the fact that I need to post some of these as tutorials or have the files corrupt on me when I need the work finished quick when its for publication. I just wonder why does this happen frequently when the .afphoto files exceed 1 gb?
