Windows Photo Gallery -Suddenly Not Finding Pictures in Folders RE
(Someone from the Product Team please help me!!!)
I've been using WPG successfully for a few months. Suddenly it's not finding
any new pictures in the linked folders.
Details: I have a folder on my hard drive called "Pics_005". This folder is
already added to WPG. Within this folder, there are 10 subfolders. When I
originally added Pics_005 to WPG, the 10 subfolders were automatically
detected and the pics in those subfolders automatically displayed in WPG.
Now, there are 2 new subfolders in Pics_005. (12 subfolders total). WPG did
not automatically detect the 2 new subfolders. So I went to File | Add Folder
to Gallery and manually added the 2 new subfolders. I can see the folders in
WPG's left hand pane, but I cannot see the contents of the 2 subfolders from
NOTE: I can launch Windows Explorer and see the 2 subfolders, as well as
viewing the thumbnails from within Explorer.
I've left WPG running overnight in the hopes that it would eventually start
looking for newly added folders/images, but no dice. I also tried copying one
of the 10 original subfolders (and copying the images in that old subfolder),
but WPG won't work with that newly copied subfolder either.
