first of all sorry if this topic has already been treated in some other thread.
i recently upgraded PL to version 2 (on Windows) and i have some problem searching images using Photolibrary.
For example if i search an image by focal, and i look at results i notice that beside a found image, there is also an ‘Image file missing’ item referring the same image (see attached image).
Looking at the ‘image properties’ of both images i notice that Name and Path Name are the same.
On filesystem i found:
1 XXXX.orf file
1 XXXX.orf.dop file
1 XXXX.xmp file
Is there a way to delete and recreate the index?
How can i solve this?
Orf is original raw file.
dop is made by PL v1 or v2 (if you upgraded all v1.2 dopfiles are “taken over” by v2.0)
XMP, this one you had made by your one. (if you give this temporally the name xxxxold.xmp does this image file missing stil occure? or make a subfolder and move the xmp file in there, it don’t see the xmp or it creates a other one pointing towards that new folder and then you know if the xmp influences the PL DataBase.)
I had also missing files but more as DB left overs of deleted/moved folders and files with i did out side the enviroment of PL. (it pointed towards a folder which i ones used but moved to other place or deleted.) (this is a normal itch by using DAM’s you corrupt its DB if you don’t do all changes inside the DAM.)
Reconnecting is causing “virtual copies” because it thinks there are two. (seperate folders)
But in you case it is thinking there are two on the same folder.
