TIA for any help...
I have a catalog that has ~90,000 items. Somehow the catalog got corrupted in the sense that:
I have tried the repair/optimize features in v17 (2019) and it did not help.
Sorry to hear that, could you please try the steps mentioned here and let us know if it helps?
Troubleshoot catalog issues in Elements Organizer
Thanks for the response. No, this did not correct the problem.
So now the question is: Do i start over with a new catalog? I have built this one since the first version of PSE.
And if the best way is to start over, is there anything that will make it easier? Copy tags, places, etc over?
Have you converted this catalog from Elements 16? Could you again do a conversion of the v16 catalog?
1. In v17, go to File->Manage Catalogs -> Convert
2. Check the box 'Show Previously Converted Catalogs'
3. During previous conversion, v16 catalog would have got renamed to '<Original Catalog Name> 1' (1 appended to the catalog name)
4. Please select the v16 catalog with this name and reconvert it to v17.
Please check if the new catalog has all the information intact.
Let me know if this helps or you have any other queries regarding re-conversion.
