House keeping routine for the catalogue

Post by jonr55 »

Hi there!
I see in my catalogue than some of the thumbnails/previews (actually quite many), have a small white question mark in a red frame in the lower right corner. When I click the thumbnail, the real image is not found. This is probably, but I have not been able to confirm this, because the image could have been moved or renamed. Is there an easy way to clean up all these dummy thumbnails and remove them without having to delete them one by one? I have thousands of images imported.

The catalog function lacks the means to do this.
The only sensible way is to make sure you have XMPs generate a new catalog and then nuke the old one.
