Saved images disconnected in Organizer

I have been using Elements 9 for more than a year.  Today it started doing something crazy.  When I edit a photo (did this using "guided edit"), instead of saving the edited version (in a version set), all I get is a grey screen with an hour glass.  When I go to my hard drive, I find both the original and the edited version saved, but it no longer shows up in Organizer.  To my knowledge, I did not change anything.  Any Suggestions?

    Try to reconnect those files. Go to File > Reconnect Missing Files. As you know the location already, just browse to that location.

    See if it solves the problem.

    If you are on Windows platform, goto the location : %programdata%\/Adobe/Elements Organizer/Catalogs and double click the folder whose name is same as your catalog. On MAC the location you go to would be : ~/library\Application Support\Adobe\Elements Organizer\Catalogs

    Now there must be a file with name thumbs.cache. Simply rename it.


    Launch Organizer and see if thumbnailing happens now for your catalog. If not, run the following two commands-

    File >> Manage Catalogs >> Select your catalog >> Optimize

    File >> Manage Catalogs >> Select your catalog >> Repair

    Did you try catalog repair and optimize?

    You don't need to reinstall. First try catalog repair and optimize and if that doesn't work, you may create a new catalog for test sake. To do so, click File > Catalogs > New.
