Reconnect Problems after Restore  PSE9

May 24, 2013 12:51 PM

I did sucessful backup to an external HDD then restored after upgrade from Vista to Windows 7.  I have tried reconnect all several times after pointing to my picture directory, it starts working then just stops - forever!  I end up aborting the process. 


I am considering another restore, but since I no longer trust this process, is it possible to copy the old folders and files from my old HDD, including the old catalog file, then restart PSE9 and will it use that correctly?????  Or can I tell it to use the old catalog file?

    The Restore process should place the files to your selected location (original or custom) and that should be the new location for those files as far as the Organizer is concerned. There should be no need to perform a reconnect process.


    You can simply move the catalog file from one hard drive to another and continue to use it, as long as the files are still in the same location.
