When a drive you used to save the last image on before turning off the is not available when you turn on the computer and Photoshop CS6, Photoshop will lock up when using open, save and save as functions.
From CS5 same problem would happen on opening, but in CS6 you moved the problem to open, save and save as. Now I work on something and I cannot save it. I am a programmer in VB and can say you are missing the logic line "on error goto" for these three items. I know CS6 is not written in VB but that is the type of lines missing for all three functions
If you wish to contact me my email is

In this case the OS is blocking when we try to get information on the unavailable drive, and we have to wait for the OS to return.
There is no error case because we are waiting for an OS API to return.
