Unlinked Catalog


I opened Daminion today and, for some reason, since yesterday every item in the catalog is shown as unlinked.

I tried relinking a few - no effect
I tried rescanning a few folders - no effect

All the images are present on my NAS. The location is unchanged and they are all visible in Synology Photo Station.

Has my catalog become corrupted? If so how do I repair it please?

Regards

- Paul

Hi Paul,

What you mean with unlinked? Do you have grouped items that are not shown as stacked or don't you see any items in your catalog?

Hi Paul,
same question: what do you see - the broken chain symbol, or the question mark in the right upper corner?
Regards, Uwe

Every image has a question mark top left corner of image and I can't relink them

I discovered the folder watch service was stopped so i restarted that but that has made no difference and to be honest i didn't expect it to

Hi Paul,
what happens if you call "Read tags from file" or "update thumbnail"? Do you have access to the folders on the NAS from the Windows system?
Regards, Uwe

I can't read or write the tags Uwe, but you're instincts are right. While I was waiting for replies, I noticed that all my network folders in Windows had dropped and would not reconnect. I have just rebooted the NAS to make sure that's not the issue. Windows is still not connecting, and if I try to map a new network folder, it's only seeing my backup and test servers, not production.

I think a Windows restart is the next step.

Restart made no difference and that server is not discoverable by any of my PC's

Clearly this is a networking or server issue. I can access all services on the server through the web, just not through Windows. I can even use Synology desktop apps and sync them to the server. Weird.

I need to check out some Windows forums.

For reasons that I cannot discover my NETBIOS settings went haywire sometime in the last 24-48 hours and I can no longer access a network drive. I can, however, access it and map it using the LAN IP address. So, as far as Windows is concerned, the drives are back.

By Daminion isn't happy. It has the UNC name in the catalog definition and that cannot be reached. I suppose I need to edit teh catalog or set up a new one in Daminion Home Server?

Is that right?

Hi Paul,

Can you relink your folder in the Folder tree in the left to UNC that consists of the IP address? My catalog root is 192.168.2.3\Multimedia\Pictures.

Yes i can substitute the IP address but it doesn't affect the linking. I think I need to concentrate on sorting out why Windows has stopped recognising the NAS

Actually it DOES affect things. Having closed and reopened Daminion, I have now "lost" all my folders. I think I need to stop tinkering in Daminion and go fix Windows
