The program is on my main windows drice c and the photos on a data drive D
The catalog file 'May 2020' is found on the c drive PrgData/Adobe/Eelements organizer/ Catalog/May2020
Win 10 will not update past 1809 and so I am faced with a total re installation of Win 10 requiring a fresh instal of EO 2020. This will require the restoring of catalog May 2020.
Is there any way of doing this apart from deleting every image on the D drive and then restoring my catalog from a back up held on an external drive. I believe if I just do a restore every photo will end up being duplicated and ther 22,000 photos going back over 60 years.
Is there anyway I could save the May 2020 file and paste it back onto the fresh c drive and EO will pick up my catalog and thus saving loads of work.
I know this isn't a Windows forum but you don't say why your Win10 won't update further than v1809. I had the same problem and it turned out to be because the manufacturer was no longer supporting my 'old' computer (6YO) and therefore certain manufacturer-developed drivers that were incompatible with newer Win10 versions aren't being updated. If ythat is your problem, re-installing Windows might not get you anywhere and may be a frustrating experience. But if you have resolved your problem with Win, and it was because of unavailable drivers, I would be interested in hearing about how 🙂 . And BTW, I still use that old computer with Win 10 v1809 but at some point I know apps will stop working with it. And another BTW, I am having no problem running PE2020 on this old computer.
