After Crash, Recovering Organizer is it possible?
Posted 05 April 2012 - 11:38 PM
My computer crashed, and although I had been backing up the computer with Replica on to an external hard drive, when the computer was repaired my files are still there, but they told me I would need to reinstall PSE (I have PSE7) - so I did, but when I go to organizer, there is nothing there. Does this mean I have lost all my tags, albums, directories, etc? Does that mean I have to start all over importing all my photos into PSE?
Of course this only happens when I have a big project to do immediately!!
Thanks for any help you can give, I'll continue to search forums and online.

I tried that, but it can't find the file, even on my external drive that I've been backing up on. I'm guessing that you have to do a purposeful backup of the catalogue, not just a general backup.
I knew I should be paying more attention to the backup process, I keep hearing about crashes and thinking it couldn't happen to me!
LOL. Some of us learn the hard way, at least I still have the photos.

Believe it or not my computer crashed no less then 3 times since the beginning of the year. I lost all my pictures from last year, my downloads etc. So I feel your pain. I'm being more diligent about backing up my files.
