Re: Swapping image hard drive

Thanks, I did as you said and then read the metadata from the files. That cleared all except a few on a drive that is not currently attached, which was to be expected.

Re: Swapping image hard drive

In Timeline, select 1899. Then select all thumbnails, right click and select Metadata -> Read from File Having finalised swapping 2 failed drives in the last few weeks, I have some housekeeping to do. There are 200+ images dated 1899 which were not taken by my great grandfather ;-). I have tried th...

Re: Swapping image hard drive

Many thanks, Hert! That apparently worked well. :) My spur of the moment panic about losing 20,000 images was unjustified as they were located on another drive. Although the process of swapping drives is quite simple, one lesson from this exercise is to only change drive and/or directory names after...

Re: Swapping image hard drive

Here is another screenshot showing the current status. All folders are correct and populated with images except the most important folder which is the new ImageLib-B. Although I have mapped it to the correct folder, it shows only a subfolder named ImageLibrary-B with all the images. This subfolder n...

Re: Swapping image hard drive

This has only partly solved itself. The red 'offline' folders have corrected themselves! I left Psu alone for 30 mins and everything suddenly looks good. There were no moving indicators to show that anything was happening. So far so good, except as mentioned earlier, ‘ImageLibrary-B’ was the old nam...

Re: Swapping image hard drive

Thanks, done that and I’m now back to where I was before verifying the folder. The screen shot shows the new drive and ImageLib-B is the new library. This is where I was trying to correct things last time, but it went wrong. All other lines show relevant folders, except the penultimate, ‘ImageLibrar...

Re: Swapping image hard drive

Sorry to sound pedantic, but I want to get it right.

1. You are presumably referring to "restore PSu data" command?
2. To do the above, PSu is open anyway, so I can close it and reopen.
3. Then I will map again.

Did I understand you correctly? Thanks.

Re: Swapping image hard drive

Stephen, maybe consider returning to your backup from before the verify. OK, but if you are referring to a data backup, there is no backup immediately prior to the verify. The verify was done following the attachment of the new drive and mapping to that drive. This will now mean starting from scrat...

Can you not just drag the labels from Misc to where they should belong ? That's what I have done for the few times that has happened to me.
Where do synonyms belong? That part of the discussion on synonyms remains open.

Re: Swapping image hard drive

Thanks, Hert, That did occur to me even before receiving your rapid reply. I tried one image and the labels did indeed return. However, the synonyms which I chose for the label ‘chairs’, namely “chair, seat, seats” all appear in the misc category, rather than under ‘furniture’ which is where ‘chairs...

Re: Swapping image hard drive

The new drive failed before I could start using it in PSu. I obtained a replacement and synced all the files over. That still worked. Then I verified them, which also worked. I changed the name of the drive (forgot to do it beforehand) and told PSu where to find it (Map to Correct Physical Folder). ...

Re: Version selection for selected items ?

Perhaps there are ways around it and I'm not understanding the ramifications of Stephen and Mke's suggestions but if I'm correct, those suggestions don't address the issue that the OP is having. I cannot comment because I don’t use version sets. My simultaneously shot RAW and camera JPGs are placed...

Re: Version selection for selected items ?

I do almost the same. The difference being that I also shoot JPG simultaneously to RAW, in case I need a quick usable shot before processing. So I have: | |-directory ||_RAW + in camera JPG ||_DNG ||_jpg | It has the advantage for me in that I can use the main folder to view both RAW and 'in camera ...

Re: Swapping image hard drive

Thanks, easy peasy, that was the $64k solution! I'm so pleased that I decided years ago to put all images on an external drive.
