Hi Bruce,

                 Isn’t the metadata embedded in the photos themselves? That’s what’s meant to happen, or have you only got the unaltered camera RAW files?

Cheers,

Geoff

Geoff,

 

Well, I couldn't make a mirror copy of the C: drive and neither could the technician.  I suspect the reason being that Adobe programs can't be cloned?  At any rate I have the old C: drive and will ask him to copy files for keywords, actions, and plug-ins.  But I have no idea where to get all the metadata for thousands of photos.

 

Thanks,

bruce

Hi Bruce,

                How did you make that DVD? Simply copying? If so you should be able to find the file on it. Why not ask the technician who did the install?

Cheers,

Geoff

Well, I had to do a clean install to update to the latest Windows 10.  Had to do with the size of the System Reserve partition.  I had a local technician do this, as the instructions from various sources seemed too complicated.  Well, everything is mostly OK after reinstall.  Except, dumb me, I didn't save the folder having my key words.  Since I have literally thousands of photos, this causes me more than a bit of consternation.  I was brilliant(?) enough to burn a DVD containing the entire C: drive, and I've asked MS support if there is a way to selectively reload items from that DVD.  Anyone else have any suggestions?  Other than going back a few days and THINKING.

 

Thanks, Bruce
