Hello everyone, i am performing a batch action to a folder containing 800,000 images; resizing them and saving to a different folder, if the process stops in the middle for any reason is there anyway to resume from a specific file in the folder?

It's almost guaranteed to stop. I would look into using a different tool for this “industrial volume” of images, such as ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick or XnConvert or nConvert etc.

Hi,

 

Unfortunately, if the process is stopped in the middle, there is no way to continue further. Again, you need to start the process from scratch. The best way to do this is to spilt the folders and continue with batch action.

Unfortunately you cannot.

All you can do at this point, is to remove the files that already done from the source folder and run Batch again on that folder.

If the Batch process is stopping because of errors, you can change this option in Batch window (bottom left) into Log Errors to File, and choose a location where to save that file (text files), this way Batch will not stop for errors but will log them into that text file instead.
