What is the best way to update the references to file after a move?

I have a Photoshop Elements catalog picture with about 25 k images all pointing to a network share I call \\thehive. I moved, or sync'd if you want, all the files in the network share \\thehive on a drive of local storage for better performance, which is now located on P:\ drive. I intend to treat the P drive as my main drive that reads the catalog and use \\thehive network simply as a clone of the P drive that I intend to keep in sync with SyncToy. I have already all this configuration in place, the files are sync'd on the drive P and \\thehive, everything works as expected so far. But how to do to update the catalog so that it starts from the P drive instead of the \\thehive? A photo today points to \\thehive\2008\somepicture.jpg, and I need to point to P:\2008\somepicture.jpg.

I'm a very advanced computer user, I could edit an XML file or do some advanced operations not supported if I had to. Would appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.


The fastest way is to directly edit the values in the catalog.pse9db database.  The database is a database SQL Lite, so if you know (or know someone who knows) how to run SQL queries against a database, you have the chance because Adobe has done a great job of a highly normalized database schema design.

I highly recommend this tent first on a copy of your database.  In general, the procedure goes like this:

  1. Add one of your images on the P: drive in the catalog.  This establishes a list for the P: drive and its identification in the volume_table table.
  2. Run a SQL query on the table of volume_table to see a list of all the lines.
  3. Note that the values in the column 'id' for your volume "the thehive" and one "P:".
  4. Run a SQL query on the media_table table to update the value of the id_volume column, replace all instances of the id number "the thehive' with the identification number of the reader"P: ". The SQL query will look something like this:

Update media_table

Set volume_id = "."

where volume_id = "."

I tested with PSE9.0.3 on Win7, changing the location of a CD on my E: drive on a USB on my F: drive.

Good luck!

  • What is the best way to update coming 8 Pro?

    I'm a little confused about the best way to update my V8P. The app My Dell seems to be looking for updates, but it is also linked to a page on the Dell site that checks the latest downloads for the device. The link is provided through the tile from drivers and downloads . This page of the Web site, incidentally, trying to install a program to check my V8P, but the facility apparently never works. I always get an error message that says (and I entered here exactly as it appears, the police blue and all):

    "We're sorry, we were able to scan your system. "Please return to the drivers home to return to.

    Because of the link to the site I don't know if My Dell app is all I need. The app has an area of notification, which seems to be to talk about new drivers and such available, although drivers and downloads of tiles wonder is if there is more, I might have need. Why have the drivers and downloads of tiles if the application checks and warns me on drivers and downloads?

    Bottom line, is that I'm confused. So, what is the best way to ensure that my V8P is up-to-date?

    Manually, I downloaded and installed Dell system detect. After doing this I have re-tried the system analyze the updates of the Web page and it worked. I now have a lot of updates available.

  • Best way to update the individual rows of a Table?

    I took a quick glance at a few examples, but did not get a clarification on this.  I am looking to have something close to a listbox control or the table to where I can update just one column of values to line a 1 time per second pace.  I'm looking to display our acquisition of data values in a table or a listbox control.  The single list box seemed to work well for that, but I couldn't use the row headers to list the names of channel beside the channel values.  I thought to link the values of cursor in two areas of list to do this, but did not find any info on it for the single list box.

    I have a few questions:

    (1) I have a 1 d table to where I want to use this data to constantly update the first column (with a multitude of lines) of a table.  I'm looking for the best route to not take too much time for treatment by doing this.

    What is the best way to update the individual rows of a table?   Invoke the node "Value of the cell value"... or is there another method?

    (2) why is that, after each iteration else, row values are deleted?

    Also, for adding additional channels originally arrray... it is better to use the 'Array' subset then the function "Construct the table" or function "Subset of the table" and "insert table"?

    See the attached example.

    Thank you.

    Jeff· Þ· Bohrer says:

    Classic race condition.  dump the loop and node-p and just wire the 2D table on the terminal Board. !

    I don't see the race condition.  What I see is the table once the last element has been written for it all run the oil.  I saw looked it with point culminating performance on.

    But I agree entirely with writing to the Terminal.  It is a 1 d array, so you will need to use an array of generation and convert a 2D array in order so that he could write correctly.

  • Best way to update GUI

    Hi, I have a class of "business model" that contains all of my variables that are displayed on my GUI which is a separate category. As these variables change very frequently during execution of the program I need some advice on the best way to update my GUI as needed. I use a controller with actionListeners to cope with the changes in the opposite direction. Then I can manipulate the this approach based on my needs or should I implement Observable I read somewhere else?

    I don't see why not. But it depends on how abstract you want to get.

    Remember that an "event" is simply the source calling a method specified in advance of the target. In other words, there is a framework in order to hide the details, but in the end, it is simply the JButton calling the actionPerformed method in your controller.

    If even you can configure the controller with some methods specified in advance, cause the GUI change somehow and the model call these methods pré-spécifié whenever it was necessary. It would be the easiest way.

    But notice that in your interactions view controller, the controller is really interacting with a variety of components from the view. Maybe your model is broken down into a number of components also, and perhaps it would be beneficial for the controller to directly interact with these components. In this case you might want to formalize these interactions, possibly using the observer model events.

    Each file type is in a different format.  The formats are different
    essentially for two reasons:

    1. the files contain any other type of information. For
    example, an mp3 file contains a music and a xls file contains a
    worksheet. The music and spreadsheets are very different things and one
    a unique type of guy would not work for both.

    2. There is also the example of the types of files that are very different, even
    Although basically they both contain the same type of data. For example,.
    a doc file is a file created by Microsoft Word processor (or
    some compatible programs) and a wpd file is a text file
    created by WordPerfect. This is because Word and WordPerfect are two
    very different programs, with very different characteristics. Designers
    and authors of each of the programs designed for a type of file that would be
    works very well with their program.

    Thank you

    MREMP50.sys is the PCAUSA NDIS 5.0 MPR of Printing Communications Assoc. protocol driver.


    It is usually located in C:\Program Files\Common\Motive. This is part of the management software in Broadband Mobile Communications, which is now part of Alcatel-Lucent. This software is distributed by several ISPS to provide their users with Office diagnosis.

    Win32.TDSS.reg isn't a registry key, but the name is similar to that of known malware.

    I don't know what they are. What are in?

    Basically, you can delete all the .tmp files. Note, however, that
    Although 102,000,000 may seem like a large number, it's actually a
    small amount of disk space. These days, where you can buy a 250 GB hard
    drive for about US $50, 102MB is about 2 cents worth.

  • Is there a reason to save the original NEF files after import for the LR in the form of files 'convert to DNG?  Is there a reason to save the two versions?  The NAVE seems to have no further use other than too much hard drive space.

    Is there a reason to save the original NEF files after import for the LR in the form of files 'convert to DNG?  Why save versions when the DNG is the original and the NAVE seems to just take remote hard drive space?

    I see no reason to keep them, they take a lot of space, one of the reasons to convert to DNG is that they are almost 20% smaller than the ships.

    But it is of course your choice...

    You do not need to start from scratch, you can make sensitive sites but its never going to be as good, or even as a site built with that in mind. Actually, that makes a huge difference to the way a website is designed.

    You can build a site on a development site and the port, we often... But do not think about what changes, what remains the same, how you take it a direct site (about a day or more) replacement of files, 301 redirects if you changed your URL, backups... and so on.

    You can copy your site which will be over of ports of things like pages and products, and you can then delete the templates and css, the js files, etc if you want and go from there.
