  • Lightroom - how to restore backed up files (not the Lightroom Catalog) from one external drive to another?

    How to restore backed up files (not the lightroom catalog) from one external drive to another.

    I've recently saved my photo files to one external drive to another. The backup (carbon copy clone) pointed out some files corrupt on the original drive.

    I deleted these files and find good copies of Time Machine backups.

    I want to get rid of the original external drive; use the recent backup as my main outside and then save it to a new disc.

    I'm not sure how everything is point lightroom for backups so he knows look on the new drive instead of the old drive and all points of exclamation and question marks go away.

    There are close to 60 000 images in several files with a 'parent folder."

    My best guess is Lightroom Help - create and manage folders - locate missing files

    Can I point to the folder of one of their parents, and all of the subfolders will return?

    This is the process for recovering files in lightroom and there will be a problem with so many photos?

  • during an update lots of my profile folder has been put in a folder on the desktop marked the old data. How to restore this data file

    During a bet to update, automatic update of windows has started and some how much my profile data has been removed and stored in a file on the desktop. There is a simple and easy way to restore this folder from the current firefox?

    You can use the contents of the Old Firefox Data folder to "roll back" the refresh, but this involves several steps. It's probably even faster than the recovery of individual files and load those into your new profile.

    Check in the folder 'Old data Firefox' update adds a folder with a random semi name on your desktop. If there is only one, that probably has your old settings and Add-ons. If there is more than one, you'll want to work with one who has been updated recently.

    Once you have identified the profile folder, that you want to restore, here is my "old profile resurrection suggested procedure:


    Here are the steps described in more detail below:

    1. Create a new Firefox profile
    2. Delete all of this profile folder
    3. Copy in all of the old profile folder

    Create a new profile for Firefox (Windows)

    Exit Firefox completely and start up in the Profile Manager by pasting the following in the Windows search, or the Run dialog box by pressing ENTER:

    firefox.exe -P

    Note: any time want to switch profiles, exit Firefox and return to this dialog box.

    Click on the button create a profile, give it a name like OldSettings and skip the option to change the location of the folder. Select the new profile from the dialog box, and then start Firefox.

    Open the new profile folder in Windows Explorer

    Firefox in the new profile should look like a new installation of the plant. Open the troubleshooting information page by using either:

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > troubleshooting information
    • Menu help > troubleshooting information
    • type or paste everything: in the address bar and press Enter

    In the first table, click on the view file"" button. Firefox will launch your new profile folder in Windows Explorer.

    This folder open, switch back to Firefox and get out by using either:

    • "3-bar" menu button > button "power".
    • (menu bar) File > Exit

    Firefox is closed, the profile folder must be front and Center, or you can activate it by using the taskbar.

    Copy old data instead of new

    In this new profile folder you just popped open - NOT the one on your desktop - select all content (you can use Ctrl + a) and delete (you can press Delete on the keyboard).

    Leave this window open, open or switch to your folder of old data of Firefox. Consult your old profile folder. At this level, you should see a folder named bookmarkbackups among other things.

    Select all (Ctrl + a) and copy (or right-click > copy or Ctrl + c).

    Switch to the empty profile folder in another window and paste (or right-click > paste or Ctrl + v). This may take a few minutes because some files are large.

    Launch Firefox

    Firefox should start in this 'new' profile with the old resurrected profile data. Success?

  • How to restore the PSD file accidentally crushed by preview after the closing?


    I recently registered and closed a file psd with many layers, and now when I opened it again it is a flattened image.  According to me, which may occur in the East after closing photoshop, I wanted to take the last look at the image and opened it in preview.  After saw closing and stop of my laptop, I have opened the image this morning and now it is flattened but still a psd.  Usually an excerpt asking you if you want to make changes to the images, but I never got a notification (recently updated to Yosemite, then maybe this feature is no longer available)

    Is it possible to restore the psd for the last time that I saved it in photoshop?  I heard that there is a way to read your story/brush strokes in your last session (scripts?) but I'm not entirely sure of how this works.  Help, please!

    Thank you ~.

    Problem solved!

    It turns out that Preview has the opportunity to restore the images to what they were before the changes have been made.  By doing this I revenue the psd file flattened (flattened during the rotation of the image) to the original with layers.  For the future I will make sure that all of my images are locked in the window.

    Thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it!

    To bring back a deleted file (or folder) using shadow copies / previous versions, right-click the folder used to hold the file (or folder), then choose restore previous Versions. Then click on the version of the file you want to resurrect and drag it to the desktop. At this point, you can open the file and search around inside - your deleted files (and folders) are still there.
