    Importing duplicates because the native files were lost

    michaelstjames_in_calgary

      I confess that I had some original photo files go missing between back-ups.  I save a back-up of the entire camera during the import process, so I have all of the unedited versions on a back-up disk.  I'd like to re-import these missing files from those back-ups and preserve the EXIF data at least.  Example: a photoshoot from last week saw 100 photos on the camera which were backed up on the external drive at the original import.  These have been pared down to 20 keepers and subsequently keyworded and sorted into collections, etc... Can these 20 get re-imported only preserving some of the data?  I realize the edits are probably gone (or are they), but I'd like to save a few hours of work.

       

      Thanks for the advice,

      Mike.
