    Adding folders back into a catalog where the catalog suspects duplicates?

    Zone_99

      Hi,

       

      I've been searching for the answer for this but I must just be thinking of it wrong.

       

      Last year, I had a hard drive crash and I've been restoring some of my photos from backup.  In one case, I have a folder in my catalog structure that only shows one sub  folder.  However, if I look at the hard drive, there are multiple folders. 

       

      Essentially:

      Catalog:

      2008

      2008-04-25

       

      Hard drive:

      2008

      2008-01-25

      2008-01-31

      etc.

       

      I would have thought "easy import", right?  Well the problem is that my catalog shows all the photos as duplicates and existing in the catalog so if I try to import with 'Don't import suspected duplicates' off, then I wind up with two of each file. 

       

      What's the proper way to restore the folders to the catalog?  Or did I just think of the answer to my own question and I should import and "Add" instead of moving or copying?

       

      Thanks!
