Check for orphaned files/directories can wipe catalog info

Postby m.Th. » Sun Aug 03, 2014 7:02 am

If one goes to Settings | Database -> Optimize... and selects 'Check for orphaned files/directories' by pressing {Ok} the program can delete the missing entries even if these have catalog info assigned.

The best solution would be a dialog at the beginning saying:

Code: Select all

This operation can delete some entries from DB which have ratings, colors and/or keywords assigned. Do you want to check for these before?
{Yes} {No} {Cancel}


For {Yes} it will check for each file/directory if there are entries in 'Tags' table or Rating/Color is different from 0. Some code which do something like this should be present under 'Clean files' checkbox.
For {No} it will work like it is now.
For {Cancel} it will abort the operation.

O.k., thank you, I can also reproduce the problem. Issue 1089 is fixed in next version.
