How to recover tags after XnView crashed?

Post by SsjCosty » Mon Dec 25, 2017 8:36 pm

Hi,

I was going through a list of around 2000 photos, tagging the favorites. After tagging I was going to apply some labels to them and save that info to the images' metadata. However, when I was almost done (after several hours of work), XnView crashed. I opened it again and navigated to the pictures folder, and none of the pictures are tagged anymore!

Is there a way to recover those tags? Does XnView save some backup catalog somewhere? Please give me some good news...

tags are saved in category.db, it's strange that they have not been restored correctly.
