Looking for suggestions, here is my tale of woe.... PSE 2019 organizer

  • Got a new hard drive, installed it as C:, orginal hard drive is now E:
  • Did a full backup from catalog on E:
  • Restored the backup to same folder name on C:, restore file structure.
  • All my pictures are now disconnected, when I try to reconnect to files on C drive it will not, "files already in catalog".
  • In tree view folder structure appears on E: and is grayed out
  • If I disable my E: drive in device manager catalog is fine, all conected, file info location is correct, C drive.
  • Changed my E drive to F: just for kicks, now folder structure appears under F:

16k disconnected pics.... Infuriating....  help.....  Please.

Found my solution, posting here for posterity

Catalog uses Volume ID number to identify disks, not the drive letter.

Cloned disk had same volume ID as orignal, so catalog was reverting to the original drive

Fix:  Change volume ID of orignal disk using VolumeID tool.
