ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Re: Relink old Galleries

I cracked it. Created a new share on the Synology NAS and named it the same as the CD disk label. On the PC, mapped it as a drive. Converted the TD4 again then loaded the TPDB8.

The only thing I never noticed before but now I do is the thumbs in the galleries don't show the file comments even though the originals still do.

Thanks for some great detail there! Pretty well everything I was thinking of, but hoping I wouldn't have to do.

So is my memory faulty or do I remember a feature in old TPv? where it had a standalone/distributable version so you could put everything on a CD for example and distribute it anyone to use to view the files on the fixed media?

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Relink old Galleries
« on: 2020-04-20 17:59:38 »
I have a collection of a few thousand photos on a TD4 database (already converted) that had all been divided into galleries. I can still see the galleries and gallery thumbnails but the photos are no longer linked to the current files location.

How can I relink them to the current location?

To be even more specific, how can I change the path on the files? All the files are linked to a CDROM that is no longer available but I have the same file structure and files to the folder I need on a network server. In case this ever gets moved again, how do I change the folder and file path to be relative instead of absolute? The database files will always be kept at the root of the photo folders.
