I’m in the early days of using sidecars rather than relying on writing data to the central database.
I have somehow managed to assign ratings to a pair of images where PL has read the data from a FastRawViewer sidecar. I was pleased as I thought it would save me time in the future but when I tried to change that rating within PL I had a problem where if I cleared the ratings I’d just given in PL the original ones from FRV would reappear and these I was unable to remove. I should say that I HAD deleted the FRV sidecar data after the ratings had moved to PL and before changing the rating in PL and I suspect that might have caused the problem.
I managed to rectify things by restoring a backed up copy of the database from a couple of weeks ago but as my PL database has only practice stuff in it I thought I’d delete it completely and start afresh.Seemed to make sense. The question is how do I do that? I’ve gone into the library and can see 4 DOPDatabase files as below. Which files require removal? Or should it be the whole folder ‘DxO PhotoLab v1’?
