All drive nodes and folders on SLEEP
« on: January 14, 2020, 04:22:29 AM »
Hello all.

I replicated my Photo hard drive.
The contents are identical.
The old Photo hard drive was about to fail (it has now).

I plug in the replicated hard drive.
Same drive letters, everything is identical.
iMatch believes that EVERYTHING is offline.

So I Right mouse clicked on a folder, then selected Relocate to other Disk/Media.
The Source and Destination folders are identical.

iMatch then removes the folder from the drive hierarchy.  It is gone.
Thank goodness I only did this with one folder.

Question:
How do I tell iMatch to open it's eyes and see that all the images are there?
Nothing has changed.

Thanks,
James.

EDIT:
Using iMatch 3.6.0.118 on Windows 7.

No support is available from me for IMatch 3.x anymore. This software is 10 years out of date.

See Off-line Folders and Files for principal information about how current IMatch versions work with off-line folders and disks.

I think I had the same thing many years ago; refresh the top node in the list (right click, Refresh); or just close/reopen imatch. It's a shock when it happens the first time!

Hi there,

I've tried hitting F5; Ctrl + F5;  Right Mouse Click - Rescan.
Half the menu items in the Right Click context menu are greyed out.

I've since noticed other strange behaviour with iMatch.

Those Folders that disappeared when I clicked "Relocate to other Disk/Media" have reappeared in the Root Node.

And one of them is asleep.
I have no idea.

Maybe I should let the whole thing rebuild overnight....

Cheers for your help.

EDIT:
Or maybe I look at upgrading iMatch.
I didn't know it was that out of date - a compliment to the program and author, it has served me well.

Sounds like a problem with relocation? Maybe relocated to the wrong spot?
I don't recall anymore how reloc worked in the ancient IMatch 3.x.  This was 10 years ago.

Maybe just restore your last daily backup of the database and retry the relocation.
