If you overwrote a file, you should be able to confirm that by looking
into the folder with Windows Explorer. Please confirm that you have done
With respect to the icon, that means that the image has been moved from
the location that the PSA database has in its table. This could also
mean that you have deleted the image unintentionally. You could check in
the recycle bin to see if it is still there and then just right-click
and restore it to its original location.
As to reconnecting, basically PSA looks for the closest matches and then
you manually connect them again.
Let me know if this helps.
I have checked Windows Explorer & in my folder the original icon that I want appears. When you click on it to inlarge the pic, it shows the other icon I accidentally replaced it with.
I also went to my deleted files & imported everything back in hoping it would be there but it isn't.
I do have a backup disc, how can I use it to import and over ride back to the original picture?
What does the red box with a tear in it represent? It's shown at the bottom of the original picture?
Sorry for the delay... This sounds quite messy. Do you have a lot of
tags? If not, it might be an idea to do one of two things and I'll
explain the merit of each option:
1. Restore your backup;
You should do this ONLY if you are not concerned about overwriting what
you have done since the backup;
2. Restore images from your recycle bin, relabel the my catalog.psa file
to my catalog.old and start all over...
You should do this if you are concerned about images that you have been
working on since the last back up. It will lose all your
tags/collections, but any images that are still on your computer will
not be affect.
Now... let me know which option you want to proceed with and I'll write
out the instructions for you.
Jim, I appreciate your help & time. I am not computer savvy therefore, I don't really understand what you're asking me to do. I have a backup cd for my whole computer (per my Norton Software). The cd would have the picture I want saved on it. If I were to download that cd can I over-ride the picture on my computer now with the picture from my cd? Hopefully this makes sense. Thank you again for your time & help. Teresa
Your software might have the ability to let you restore only files that
are "newer" so that you do not overwrite files that you have changed
since the back up. For example, let's say you do a back up now. In five
minutes you make a change to an image. In 10 minutes you restore, the
restore SHOULD only put files on the computer that are missing and NOT
overwrite the image that you changed after the backup. To ensure that it
would do that, I would check with the makers of Norton though.
I wonder... can you see the file you want on your CD? If you can just
copy it, you don't have to do a restore at all.
