No Lightroom does not use a different catalog.

We discuss records, are we not? In the original catalog, you have a folder with one? mark, say C:\Photos, and you used your operating system to move it to F:\Photos. Lightroom has this record showing under the C:\ drive. As soon as you make the reconnection, Lightroom indicates the folder in the drive F:\.

Oh, and is there a way to do all the files at once? or what I need to do one at a time?

See Figure 4 and the corresponding text in the document I linked to.

  • Satellite R630 - 11L - sometimes did not recognize the SSD drive

    Hi all

    I have a portable Satellite R630 - 11L and I just bought a Corsair F120 SSD for her, but my laptop a few times did not recognize the SSD drive and fails to start occurs. I searched on the Internet concerning the issue, but there are any topic related to my problem. in recent days, I have updated my bios but the problem remains. for example if I put the computer to sleep and he never wake ups as it should be. the blue windows screen 7 failure comes and an error message 'could not access the windows volume. If portable succesful started without problem occurs until I reeboot the computer. so most of the time I have to restart computer about 5 - 6 times to work normal. At the same time, I opened a topic on the corsair website. They told me to test my drive on another computer, so I test it on laptops, dell and hp to my friends, but there is no any problem don't like this.

    So I test my ssd on an another toshiba laptop R630 which has a different hardware configurations, the problem remains that laptop too...

    So I think toshiba may provide a bios update to fix this problem. This laptop really great, so I don't want to buy another.

    y at - it advice to solve this problem?


    Hi machka,.

    > I think that here is the toshiba support forum. is not here?
    Here he s a Toshiba forum, that of right, but you can only chat with normal users like you and me. You will not find someone from Toshiba here.
    The forum is provided Toshiba but for Toshiba users to exchange experience on different products.

    So I think that the Quad is just. No one can say that every SSD is compatible with all computers. You need to understand this!
    There are hundreds of different players and computers on the market and I m sure that no one can test a new computer with all SSD on the market. This is not possible, because it takes a lot of time and more expensive laptops that I think.

    So if the SSD doesn't work, there is nothing that you can wait for the BIOS update.
    Otherwise, you must purchase another SSD. Alternatively, you can ask a service provider allowed in your country, maybe that technicians have already experience with some SSD in Satellite R630. Just ask for that, they are the first contact for you! :)

  • my daughter received a comp. from a friend that the hard disk has been deleted how to get windows xp back on it

    I downloaded windows xp from mirowsoft up to 6 discs of A which I just it ready for the cd of window xp I don't have.

    Hi cjoyner66,

    Thanks for posting. I'm confused on 6 discs A you're talking about. Windows XP can not hold on 6 floppy disks if that's what you are referring. If the hard disk has been deleted, you will need to use your Windows XP disk and reinstall Windows using this disk and the key associated with this record. If you don't have XP media, you must contact the OEM of your computer or buy an extra copy of the XP.

    I hope this helps!

    • You may need to perform a repair of Windows XP Installation , but you want to do this carefully if you have a newer version of Internet Explorer installed now.  It would work BETTER if you have your installation media of Windows XP with Service Pack 3 integrated into it because it is likely that you have Service Pack 3 installed on your computer now (and the 90 + updates come after that).
    • Finally - how are * your * backups of * your * stuff?  Your documents, your photos, your music, your bookmarks, your installable applications, your serial numbers and product keys, etc. and so on?  Also, do you know what hardware drivers your system needs to communicate correctly with all the material inside and connected to your computer?  (Belarc Advisor would be a good FREE tool to run and print the results if you can.  It lists a lot of this information for you.)  You maybe just to perform a new installation of Windows XP.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones Newbie who thinks he did something stupid after installing the update...

    .... Where the Sam Hill have all my numbers, email addresses and other contact information go? And what I have to do to get back them?

    Select Desktop Manager > backup restore > advanced.

    In the left pane, you should see your most recent backup of the file... If not, choose file > open, and select the file you want.

    THEN, in the left window, choose only the databases, such as address book data, calendar databasse, etc..

    This will not restore an older operating system.

  • I did something stupid to my computer and I need help fixing it!

    Now, I've heard people use SUPERantispyware (SUPERantispyware.com) so I used it... He didn't do anything mainly because it is just an especially horrible antivirus program compared to my average so I went in this selection of repairs I can do to my computer and I have "Reset Winlogon Shell". Since I did that many permissions have been removed for access to the records and when I look in the properties of the permissions then it show that my account on this computer and admin (p.s. I'm the only account so the admin also), but then I also have these locks on a bunch of files and goes C:\users\ has not only ntuser.dat (and.. dat) Log1 and .datLOG2) but rather has also other 9 with three located in fair plugs for the real file and they all random numbers and letter after the extension. P.S. out of all those random there are three BLF and 6 REGTRANS-MS files

    I am using a Lenovo IdeaPad N580 with Win7 home premium

    I would like to use the system restore.  Here's how: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/features/system-restore

    System restore

    Ever wished that you can go back in time? With Windows, you can.

    Installation sometimes a driver or a program can make Windows run slowly or erratically. System Restore can return programs and system files from your PC to a time where everything worked, potentially prevent hours of troubleshooting of headaches. This will not affect your documents, images or other data.

    In Windows 7, you can create system restore points more and see exactly what files will be deleted or added when your PC is restored. For more information, see create a restore point.

    For more protection, use the restore system backup and restore, which is designed to help save email, photos, documents and other personal files.

    To use the system restore

    Before you start the system restore, save open files and close all programs. System Restore will restart your PC.

    1. Open system restore by clicking the start . In the search box, type restore the system and then, in the list of results, click on system restore. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    2. Follow the steps in the wizard to select a restore point and restore your computer.

      For more information, see System Restore: frequently asked questions.

    In Windows 7 system restore can prevent headaches hours after an accident.
  • Acrobat displays as "up-to-date" on a new installation of Yosemite. Cannot uninstall or installation of Acrobat.

    Yesterday, I installed Yosemite on a brand new MacBook Pro. Today, I installed Adobe CC. When the request of CC has launched for the first time, he showed Acrobat Pro XI being installed and "up-to-date".

    I have NOT installed Acrobat, but I want to. The problem is, I can't uninstall it, because it is not installed in fact!

    Other CC applications seem to install correctly.

    I tried to solve the problem of the measures are:

    -Restart the computer

    -Run the cleaning of Adobe tool and reinstall Adobe CC

    -Remove AAMUpdater, AAMUpdaterInventory, and OOBE and reinstall Adobe CC

    I know that there are many reported problems of compatibility between Acrobat and OS X Yosemite, but I hope that it is possible to install Acrobat on Yosemite? Any tips?

    Adobe support solved this for me. I had to unplug all external drives, and once this has been done VAC detected is more like Acrobat installed.

    At the time the problem I was connected to an old MacBook, which was in "target disk mode" - in other words, he was treated like an external hard drive. I guess that ACC has detected an Acrobat installation on this hard drive.

    After disconnect the external hard drive and signing out and back to the ACC everything has worked flawlessly.
