The ON1 Ideas doesn’t seem to be updated, so I hope there are some Gurus here listening. I really do not like all the sidecar files associated with my raw files: cr2 + .xmp + .on1. For 100 images there are 300 files needed. In Lightroom I backup my raw files and the catalog leaving clean folders containing the raw files. On1 also has a catalog (database) somewhere, so I would like to backup just the images and database. If I need to transfer any images to another computer I could then ask ON1 to create the sidecar files for me (like LR). As for always creating a .xmp sidecar file even when I choose not to create sidecar files, I would like to have the option of NOT creating it, as I can’t think of any reason to export just the metadata to another program like LR or PS, and it just causes conflicts when using LR and ON1 side-by-side. Anyone know what comprises the ON1 database, and where it is?
