I use Dropbox to store all of my digital scrapbooking elements. I have a lot stored within several different folders and each time I try to retrieve elements from Dropbox from within Affinity Photo (iPad) I get freezing, crashing, etc and it is super frustrating. I've done everything I need to make sure it isn't the Affinity Photo app so I thought I'd ask here if there could be an issue with accessing folders that are 'too' full.
EX: One of my folders has over 1,000 psd files.
I've used only 16.6% of my 2TB so....not sure what, if anything is going on.
Thanks for your help!
Hi @mom2kjs, thanks for joining the Community!
There isn’t necessarily an issue with large numbers of files in folders, however, there is a possibility that other apps might not be able to view the files for their own reasons.
Does it only affect that app when viewing the folder? Are you able to view the files in the folder on the Dropbox site or in your Explorer/Finder window?
Keep me posted!
Thanks for the clarification. Are you only experiencing this issue with that app, or does it occur in order apps and services?
I understand what you mean.
If the app itself is having issues loading the large folder, then perhaps you can try creating a subfolder and moving the majority of your files there that you’re not currently using to see if this helps speed things up for you.
Yeah, that was kinda my thought too, maybe move half the files (I keep them alphabetically) into another file and see if that helped or even just move what I'm using out of that folder and back when done. I just wonder if anyone else has had this issue or if you've heard of it before? 🤷🏼:female_sign:
I’ve not personally heard of any issues with this app, however, I can leave this thread open for now for other users to comment on it to see if they’re experiencing the same behavior!
