Daan,

>> So, if I understand correctly, when you open the section Galleries in the tree, you still see your galleries but they're all empty?

correct

>> Galleries are made up of simple pointers to thumbnails (thumbnail records) elsewhere in the database. Could it be that the original thumbnails to which the gallery entries referred are no longer there, or have been replaced by new thumbnails?

they are certainly there, although yeah, I think perhaps new thumbnails.  why would new thumbnails matter??

thank you Daan.  you are always a great help!

David

Because the gallery entries referred to the old thumbnails. If they have been deleted, the gallery ends up empty. This wouldn't happen if you renew a thumbnail (F3), but when thumbnails are deleted and new ones are made, the connections to any galleries that they were in are lost too.
