Didn't want to hijack a similar, long thread.
I have widespread lost edits that derived I think from batch moves from internal SSD to external, and also maybe between folders. This was all done via drag and drop in Browse. All catalogued files. Rightly or wrongly this afternoon I marked all the folders in my external SSD as “Make Catalogued Folder” thinking it would start things fresh. Now there are no +/- badges and edits are absent when I go to Develop module.
I tried moving an image and its side cars to my Mac internal drive but they do not show up as edits either even tho as with everything else the sidecar files show up in finder.
I back up my SSD every night on an external hard drive that is not catalogued. It shows the +/- badges and the images are editable, so ON1 is able to work with the backed up files and sidecars.
I am worried that I am going to loose my edits for good and will not do a backup tonight to preserve the hard drive as is.
I notice that the external gpu and the cpu are going at 25 - 80 % since I invoked the "Make Catalogued" command.
I will check on things tomorrow to see if the app has been working away in the background to bring things current.
Any advice? I am worried that I have dug myself in a hole. This all seems to be related to cataloging. Should I reformat my SSD, keep it uncatalogued, and restore it from my backup hard disk as Brian suggested in the other thread?
