Moving Pictures away from *dmc File

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)

 

*.cr2

*.xmp

 

in the Root:

*.dmc File

*_backup###.dm~ Files

 

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

Hello lupus,

yes, it's possible to move the folders of the photos to another place (internal, external).

To connect the catalog items with the moved files: Folder Tags Panel->select the folder->right click->Relink Folder...

 

But I would like to realize the following: selected Pictures on an external HDD, and *.dmc File on the HDD in the PC!

In the Import Dialog Window you can select the files that you want to import from the source folder. Additionally you can customize what should happen in the the process: define the destination folder, rename function, assign tags by the Tag Presets, convert RAW to DNG...

This works in any case independent on a "virgin" database or not.

Regards, Uwe
