RE-Import Pictures Using Windows?
Does anyone know how to import pictures more than once? Deleting the folder
where they were imported originally doesn't reset the flag that they have
been imported already - so you get the "No new pictures on device prompt".

I've been having corruption issues and need to reload older photos to test a
possible fix - incase you were wondering why I want reload stuff...

Thanks - Eric

==================================
Maybe renaming the Pictures.pd4 database
to Pictures.OLD would allow the files to be
reimported.

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\
Windows Photo Gallery\Pictures.pd4

The file can also be found with an Advanced
Search for pd4.

Go to...Start / Search / Advanced Search.

Check the box..."Include non-indexed, hidden,
and system files" Enter pd4 in the Name field
and left click the Search button.

If you catalog lots of images, making regular
backup copies of your Pictures.pd4 file would
be an excellent idea.

If corruption develops, just replace the current
..pd4 file with your backup. If you have to restore
your system or move the images to a different
computer...the original locations of the images
would need to be duplicated.
