Is there anyone to delete unnecsarry JSON files in the FaceAnalysis\json folder? I currently have 1237 files with 1078 photos. The folder grows in files but, even if I delete un-wanted faces, it never shrinks.
494 of those files are only 1k. Would it be safe to delete those?
What is the worst case senerio if a valid file is delete? Complete Corruption or just the loss a reconized face?
Spell check hit. Should read "Is there anyway to delete......."
Any people stacks will be lost in organizer.
This really seems to be a "make work for myself" sort of deal to me. Why even be concerend with such a minute detail?
Thanks for letting me know that the json files are people stacks and not photos. I was really expecting someone to respond with just "why would you want to".
The main reason I asked was because I was curious as to figure out what was going on in that folder. It did not make sense to me that I can add ten photos but the number of files stayed the same. Likewise, I could not understand why I could delete ten faces without any change.
Adobe does a poor job of housekeepiing and is a pig when it comes to spreading their file folders and registry. From time to time I add photos like school class photos. I really don't care to identify all 30 kids so I "make work for myself" and remove all the "add name" tags. Obviously, Adobe Elements does not remove the files it created from that mess so now I have a lot of uncesscary files.
BTW: I also periodically delete all the files in my tempoaray folders.
Thanks again for your response.
I delete temp files all the time---- lots of times when I'm trying to "break photoshop elements"-- like having 10 items open all at the same time, and each item has over 100 layers- the program will freeze up- and typically when that happens the scratch disc info does not get automatically deleted- so sometimes I end up with a bunch of temp files that are over 2 GB in size- those gotta go- normally scratch disk stuff gets deleted when you close PSE--- normally.
I also don't hesitate to just reach over and turn the computer off with the power button if something wrong is going on - which is generally my fault anyway. A few days ago I shut down all adobe background processes just to see what would happen-- These processes incuded the "phone home one" that verifies your copy of PSE is valid- and I've had no problems so for.
