I have Photoshop Elements 10 that I am using with Windows XP Service Pack 3, a Pentium 4 CPU with 3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 48.6 GB of free disk space.
Yellow question marks continue to appear on the top left of some images in one of my catalogs even though these images have not actually been moved. The Organizer searches for the "missing file" and finds it quickly but why is it "missing"? I have gone through the albums in this catalog, completed the missing file searches on all the images so that no yellow question marks appear and when I go back to the catalog the next time I find the yellow question marks are there again! What is making the found file become lost again?
Just to be sure, Is the option to 'automatically search and reconnect missing files' in the file section of the preferences menu checked ?
Yes, that preference is checked.
And what happens if it is 'unchecked' ?
It's good to check periodically if there are missing files but there is no necessity to let the Organizer do it automatically. Since checking is very quick, I am used to do it before any maintenance in the Organizer : backups, optimization...
