Re: PS backup process slow?

PSu's backup capability sets things up so that its internal Restore capability will work if you have a problem. Although I haven't tried it, restoring your Catalog and Thumbnail DB's from a backup done with Syncback, Acronis, or other software may not work properly. I only offer this as a cautionary...

Re: • Can folder color settings or other preferences be copied from one catalog to another?

Another example would be that the types of photos are so different, such as scientific photos used for one's career vs. travel photos used as family memories.
This would be the most likely scenario for me; separating my 'nature/landscape' images from 'hand of man' images into two catalogs.

Phil, thanks for adding the feature request to Mantis. I voted for it.

Even though I have only one catalog, this would be a nice feature to have.

When I got this computer and started having the problems (blue screens)... How are the temperatures running on your machine, especially under a heavy load? Here's a handy utility for seeing what's going on: HW Monitor . If you really want to stress your system, run Prime95 while monitoring your tem...

Re: How often does Photo Supreme crash for you?

I haven't had PSu crash in a long time. Occasionally, it shows "Not Responding" when I do a DB compact, but the process always completes successfully. My SWAG is that the Compact process temporarily suspends the PSu GUI. (I don't touch the GUI during backup or compact: I just let PSu do its thing) I...

Re: New thumbnail marker for external changes?

I agree with Mike, at least in the context of my own system. I use PSu exclusively for image management, and do all my editing in ACR and Photoshop. No other applications touch my images except for File Explorer in Windows 10. Now, Vlad, your idea would be helpful to those who do use other applicati...

Re: Upgrade Windows and the C-drive

Harald, First, consider purchasing a mSATA SSD as your primary (OS) drive. I recommend an SSD at least 256GB in size. Second, do a clean install of Windows 10 on the new SSD. With regard to PSu, once you've got your new OS and drivers installed, install PSU and then restore your PSU catalog from a b...

Re: What are the reasons for NOT using DNG instead of NEF (or CR2)?

I tried DNG a long time ago and it didn't offer much for me, except for larger files. Now, I stick with ACR to convert my NEF files and then save them as PSD files. Aside from minor corrections in ACR, I use Photo Shop CS6 for more refined editing. Some of my PSD files from NEF's get pretty large; a...

Re: Help please with installing Supreme -- SOLVED

You're welcome, Mike. Since your installed RAM is working well for your uses, that's excellent. If you need more 'punch', upgrading to 4 GB total RAM will really help. This assumes it's fairly easy to do, both technically, and for your wallet. If you have any questions that are not particularly suit...

Re: Help please with installing Supreme -- SOLVED

Mike, I know this isn't a 'Computer Help' forum, but I have some thoughts you and other PSU users may find helpful. The amount of RAM on your machine is the bare minimum for Windows 10, 32 or 64 bit. The maximum amount of RAM supported by 32 bit Windows is 4 GB, while the amount of RAM supported by ...

Sage advice, sir!

Re: Viewer problems

This could be a video driver issue, and it wouldn't hurt to update your video driver anyway, Peter. (It's always a good idea to keep drivers up to date) Since the issue persists after compacting your PSu databases, and you disabled 'Load full-size image', I am thinking this could be a RAM issue. I s...

Re: How do I sync metadata to my external harddrive files?

Is it as simple as right clicking my folder and verifying it when the external harddrive is connected? That should do it. I would close PSu, connect the drive and then restart PSu just to be safe. Once you've done that, verify the folder(s). If you have a lot of images, it could take a while, so be...
