Hi from Vienna
First I created a new Catalogue. The I imported several pictures by copying the files to a user defined directory. I created the tags and gave them to the pictures - everything is fine!
By the way - I have just moved to 5 - I didn't try the following workflow in 4 - I'm quite new to the Software!
The structure of my directory is the following:
Directory with pictures (organised in Sub Directories)
in the Root:
Now my question: Is it be possible to move the folder with the pictures to an external HDD? I just moved the folder to the HDD and daminion didn't fid the pictures - as expected!
So I used the tool
"reconnect Folder" from RB in the folder to show to the new place of the folder
But it did not work!
Do I make a mistake? Is this workflow not possible?
I Know: It is possible to keep the pictures on an external HDD during import. On the other side It is possible to copy the pictures to a user defined Folder during import.
But I would like to realize the following: selected Pictures on an external HDD, and *.dmc File on the HDD in the PC!
Idea: All my RAW pictures are kept (as they come from my cameras) on an external HDD.
Then I import the pictures, I want to have, into daminion to get the tags / information needed, there. During this "import process" the selected pictures only can be copied to another HDD! (I think, this should work for a "virgin" database!)
Is it possible to devide am existing structure into two "places"! As mentioned before?
Is it necessary to restart work giving information to my pictures ?
Thank You for help
