My C Drive crashed and I need to rebuild it. I have PSE 12 on the crashed drive. The catalog is on the D Drive. If I build a new C drive and load PSE 16, can it read the current catalog I have on my current D drive without doing a catalog restore? (I do have the catalog backed up with about 24000 pictures). My computer cannot run 64 bit. If not, if I reload PSE 12, would I have to restore the catalog or could the reloaded program just pick up the current catalog on my current D drive. I supose my dilema is that I am afraid that restoring from a backut catalog would increase the files ( duplicate) and space on the D drive.
