Affinity Photo 2 hangs on launch - looking for shared disk

Recommended Posts

I often use Affinity Photo 2 to edit images on my MacBook Air M2 and save them to a drive shared from another computer on the same local network (they are then imported from there into Avid Media Composer). If I forget to close all the images in Affinity Photo and try to launch the application away from the network - or the computer with the shared drive is switched off - Affinity Photo hangs on launch with a system message telling me it's unable to find the drive. I can't find a way to do a 'clean' launch of the application where it's not trying to reopen previously open files. I know how to launch Media Composer so it doesn't reopen the last used project - there must be a similar function in Affinity Photo but I can't seem to find anything in the user manual.

The issue "App attempts to reconnect to disconnected SMB share on launch" (REF: AFB-7024) has been fixed by the developers in internal build "".
This fix should soon be available as a customer beta and is planned for inclusion in the next customer release.
Customer beta builds are announced here and you can participate by following these instructions.
If you still experience this problem once you are using that build version (or later) please reply to this thread including @Serif Info Bot to notify us.
