I'm trying to delete a large number of images that got disconnected in rebuilding files after a disk crash. I have one good connected original and several duplicate images from other folders. I get this message when I check to delete from disk as well as from the catalog: "Analysis is currently running on the selected media. Please try again afte some time."
Any thoughts on how to totally delete these images from catalog and disk?
First go to your preferences in the organizer and disable all automatic features (which include analysis). Restart the organizer.
Then, keep in mind that missing files only need to be deleted from the catalog, they can't be deleted from disk since your catalog can't find them.
Run a search for missing files. In the resulting dialog, use the small icon (3 horizontal bars) above the missing files list; this opens a menu which lets you: - select all missing files, then delete all missing files (from the catalog).
