No synchronisation of files

Post by pakunoda » 06 Nov 14 14:07

I need help...

When I change the rating of a JPEG file with windows explorer, then PSU V3 (desktop version) updates immediately.
In the other way, if I use PSU to change the rating, nothing happens, though I have checked the "automatically write out Catalog changes to the image file" in the preferences.

Worse, no modification made in the information panel of PSU is flushed to the disk, though I do hear my hard drive doing something.
Then, if I re-read the metadata from the file, I get the former rating and infos...

My folder is not read only, nor my files.
I can't find an explanation...

Make sure you don't have "Store metadata to database only" enabled (by mistake) in Synchronize -> Write settings. Does manually syncing the file (Ctrl-S) help?

Syncing by CTRL+S didn't work, as (you guessed right) I had the database only option.
Phew, thanks!
