ThumbsPlus keeps track of active users through a field in the database. Could it be that your database is read-only or you (sometimes) don't have write-access to it?

Its my computer and I am the Admin.  Why wouldn't I have access to it.  Does it have to do with how I shut things down that leaves me listed as an active user.

PS: instead of switching to the only-you database after launching TP, you could also make a shortcut on your desktop that specifies the database (full path, between quotes if it contains spaces) on the command line.

I don't know how to do this.

I am the only user of Thumbsplus and it resides on a single computer.  I keep two databases and it has nothing to do with size.  One for the family and friends (the big one) and one for just me.  I do not want searches and the like to mix the two databases.

I am in both databases at least once a day.  The big database opens by default.  I switch to my personal database after the default fully opens.

About once the month my just for me database tells me there are too many users and I have to wait a very long time for it to clear itself up.  Its actually faster to rescan the entire 5000 picture database, a process I don't like to do.

I am running build 4015, update June 2018.

Any suggestions?
Brad

I have a 20 year old database with tens of thousands of pictures in hundreds if not thousands of folders.  Is there a way to search the entire database for orphans.

There is a way to just delete them all, but I am uncomfortable doing that.  I want to see them and either delete the thumbnail or recover the file from one of many backups over the years.

Thanks
