Re: Another newbie question

Can see your argument, but even with 223000+ images in my database over the last 20 years its not caused me a problem to date.
If I have a problem tomorrow I'll know who to blame :-)

Re: Another newbie question

You don't need to find files by name nor by location in the file system, but it is absolutely essential that every file in the database has a guaranteed-to-be-unique name without taking the folder path into account. Why is that ? I certainly don't! Path and File yes, but not just the file name, mos...

Re: Another newbie question

You do understand that you don't actually edit the contents as such of RAW files, merely apply "filters" and adjustments to the metadata that applies to the sensor information ? Hence the RAW file sensor data always stays the same and only the metadata is manipulated. Then normally you output a TIFF...

Re: Another newbie question

Sounds like a Save option in AP needs altering - if it allows - to save it back as a TIF or whatever type you prefer, rather than a file of changes that need to be applied to the original RAF (Raw format).

Re: resilio sync anyone?

Makes sense, is that covered by the call; function BackupDataToFile (AFileName: WideString; AWithVerify: Boolean = True): Boolean; or is the checking another call ? Incidentally is there a more detailed description of what the calls above do anywhere, at the moment I'm using a suck and see approach ...

Re: resilio sync anyone?

I have to agree about the backup time! Is there a reason Hert why the internal backup takes longer ? Is anything else being done that isn't obvious but might be useful to keep, any checking or does it Compact at the same time or something ?

Re: Where is the help for the scripter?

Took me ages to find that! It sure would help if it said that it was the API documentation beside it rather than only when the tooltip appears ;-)

I'm in the process at the moment of putting all the script together, I have the Sync all out of Sync images based on the existing available script, the backup is still being done by copying the files on an overnight schedule, but the Psu API has; function BackupDataToFile (AFileName: WideString; AWi...

Re: resilio sync anyone?

Not unless Hertz has provided you with a program to merge the two altered DB files :-) It will keep the individual image files updated at both ends in step, but there is no obvious way to merge the actual database files together if both have been changed. My own approach to this problem would be to ...

Re: resilio sync anyone?

Unison in its simplest mode will do just what you want; You start by setting up a config file, which points to the highest (identical) level in each file system you want to sync - the roots, you may want to include file types to include or exclude from the sync process, # Unison preferences batch = ...

Re: resilio sync anyone?

I use Unison for very similar purposes, as well as backing up copies of data with the mirroring turned off so that changes at the backup can't alter the "master" copy. I like it as it will work across OS's, local networks, across the Internet and can also with a bit of thought handle copies across m...

Re: Do you backup thumbnail database?

If those are PSU scripts that can be run from the new command line feature I should think a lot of people would be interested (including myself!) along with a "compact" script as well. That way a complete compact/backup and close PSU could be run overnight.

Re: Which folder should catalog be stored

You can move, and point PSU, at any location desired, be it a local or network drive, at least under Windows. It will remember the last location used and use that as the default next time round. Typically I have the main catalog on my workstation C: drive as its Flash, but I can access it from my La...
