User Appdata installation

Recommended Posts

I was looking at James Ritson's tutorial on How to Back Up Assets, Shortcuts etc and eventually came to the part about backing up the entire user information stored in the Affinity "appdata" files. On the video, James' described how to actually get to the "appdata" files. His PC showed 2 folders under the "Photo" folder, namely "1.0" and "1.0 beta" (this is a pre Version 2 video).

I use a Windows 11 PC. When I came to view my "Photo" folder, the contents showed "1.0". James stated in the video about this referring to the current versions installed.

Now, I previously used Version 1 but have updated to Version 2. I would have expected to see the folder "2.0" instead of "1.0". I would like to know if this is this right, or has there been some sort of mix up in the installation.

I ask because I have previously posted on here about the fact that, on V2, I cannot get the Stock panel to access either Pixabay or Pexels directly by entering terms in the Search, whereas they both (+ Unsplash) worked in my V1. The "I Understand" checkboxes for both are ticked and I can access both websites by clicking the "Pixabay" and "Pexels" text within the Stock panel. I think I'm probably clutching at straws to solve this problem and wondered if it is anything to do with the anomaly in "appdata" described above.

For V2 on Windows, the path to locate all the user-related info is %USERPROFILE%\.affinity
