    Duplicate photos after restore

    daveka5j

      I was using Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 on my old laptop, then replaced my laptop and installed Adobe Premier Elements 9. I have moved my photo folder from the old laptop (D:\Data\Photos) to my new laptop (C:\Data\Photos), and also performed a backup in Elements 9 to an external drive. I have also added photos in separate subdirectories in the new location that were not in the catalog when I backed up.

       

      Yesterday I restored my catalog backup, chose C:\Data\Photos as the location, and believe I messed up when I checked the box to Restore original folder structure. Now I have my photos in my catalog, but they're in C:\Data\Photos\Data\Photos.

       

      Is there a way to delete the current catalog with the duplicate folders and restore again, and how do I avoid the dupliates?
