I've search on the forum but didn't find an answer on my problem :shock: :shock:
here is the problem:
I've a catalogue (in fact saved regularly !! ) :wink:
my directory is as follow on my photo HD
with (at least) my photos inside (normal :? )
these photos are with some key words and ssome personns items :roll:
When creating new rep.
080212_new rep >>>located witin 0801_à_0803
When I asked for updating of dir (rep) 0801_à_0803
EM creat as much dir as existing all ready with the same pictures within
each one (as it should be) but without the keywords or persons etc...
so after the updating I'm with the following
>080125_xxx sans mots clefs
>080128_xyz sans mots clefs
>080131_zzzz sans mots clefs
I've done the following tests:
1-erasing the new directories (rep) in double and restart the updating >>
2- write new key words and taging new personns (in fact the same as it
should be) on the pictures within the new (double) directories
and deleting the "old" rep >>> new updating >>> it's ok no
duplication of these new rep :oops:
I'm afraid and sade !!! :x
I've 17000 photos cataloguated within IV3 an since july 07 in EM SP1
I din't get any problems in EM up to this bad trick !!! :cry:
I can't (wouldn't) retag with key words etc all my 17000 photos
If I take a backup ((one month ago) of my catalog ... it's exactly the same problem as descried for the actual catalog...
same ... quite...
EM/IVMP is creating a completly new catalog_1 under my actual one
of course within the the File directory Windows ...
as if my actual (or even the backup one) catalog was a gost or if it's unvisible or ... ???
It MUST have a Command that I'm loosing but which one :cry: ?
Do you see a solution?
I certainly miss something but what?
life is just what you want, God or Bad, depends on yourself ;-)
