ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Re: Catalog Size Limits?
« Last post by mikeskysoldier on 2019-03-11 23:37:26 »
Thanks for your help!  Am trying it now!!  Actually is making thumbnails superfast using .tpdb8s, have a superfast computer 4.5 Ghz 9th Gen Intel, with new Intel form of memory Optima, maybe working now 10 times faster than ever, will see how far it goes, and will let u know!

well it gets a little mixed up but i'll try explaining again. actually, more for my benefit :)
1...64bit  > 32bit. all old data established from my windowsXP. everything is fine, td4 is fine
2...32bit > 64bit. all new images (about 40 images)and 2 nearly created galleries, not fine, td4 not correct.

everything seems to work fine  64bit > 64bit. i just tested it on two other machines

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Re: What does "building file list" mean?

I see..! Well, best of luck with it. When the whole procedure is over, you should have a much more responsive database.   :-)

Finished .. lets see what was that     only about 3 days to batch process the meta data to the 118,000 files ... only 257 errors .. now to go make the 75 galleries again ...

A prelim check indicates that things are scrolling fast now...

when i copied the images/data over to the 64bit machine is where i find the td4 was not being copied.

I don't see how this is a ThumbsPlus problem. If you are doing the copying, you are in control of whether or not that .TD4 is copied. I cannot tell you why that file wasn't copied.. at best, I can make a guess - like maybe the original td4 at the target location could not be overwritten because it was in use, or maybe you didn't have write-access to that folder. Didn't Windows (or whatever software you used to do the copying) give you an error message  that told you what went wrong?

General Discussion / migrating td4 from windows7 32bit to windows7 64bit
« Last post by miltk on 2019-03-11 04:32:05 »
my main work is done on the 32bit w7
my backup and all other functions(like internet) is done on the 64bit w7

there have been mistakes copying image files and td4 from the 32bit to the 64bit.

specifically,,,,
(1) two new galleries i created in 32bit have not been created in 64bit. and
(2) new images do not have the galleries data from 32bit to 64bit - i have to manually redo it in the 64bit
the td4 data has not transferred from one platform to the other

my setup is....
w7 32bit is setup like it was in windows XP since there is no program files (86)folder. both tp5 and psp5(my source program/folder) are in "C:\program files" folder as follows - C:\program files\paint shop pro 5\images and C:\program files\thumbs5\thumbs.td4

my setup for the windows7 64bit is the source psp5 folder for my image files was created in program files(the actual psp functional program is in (86), as follows C:\program files\paint shop pro 5\images. tp5 has it's own folder as follows C:\thumbs5\thumbs.td4

i had until recently been doing all my work on XP. i had backups but for about 9months i had been migrating all my stuff to the w7 64bit with NO PROBLEMS. i just recently got the 32bit w7 and decided to use it exclusively for my work - i'd say roughly a month now. up until i got the 32bit, my XP and w7/64bit were perfectly synced - no problems transferring data. so for the past month that i've had the w7/32bit all additional images and td4 data have been on that machine.

when i copied the images/data over to the 64bit machine is where i find the td4 was not being copied. fortunately within the past month i've only added 40 images, so all the td4 data related to these additional image PLUS the newly created galleries have been manually redone on the 64bit machine.

why am i getting these incompatibilities between the 32bit and 64bit? should i made the 64bit my default work machine since most w7's are 64bit?

btw, fyi...i have tried copying the images/td4 to another w7/64bit laptop and another old windowsXP laptop with the same errors

[..]  they go just a little over 2 Gbs, then won't make thumbnails, even when large amounts of thumbnails are deleted, and orphans removed.

When you delete records from a database, they are not physically removed (otherwise that huge database file would have to be rewritten, which would take too much time). To remove them physically and actually regain space, you must occassionally run the  command Database | Advanced | Compact & Repair.

Or, instead of the default MS Accesss format database (.tpdb8), make a new database that uses the Sqlite3 format (.tpdb8s), which doesn't have the 2 GB limit.

Been using this program for years, but have been unable to keep databases, as they always fill up, even though they are stored in files with terabytes of available room, they go just a little over 2 Gbs, then won't make thumbnails, even when large amounts of thumbnails are deleted, and orphans removed.  Anyone else encountered this issue?  If so, how did you overcome it?  Thanks

Hey Daan

Did not try to use the T7 xfer utility on all these files ..

I started using T10 because T7 was acting in unpredictable ways on my Win 10 machine .. even after repairing that database.

So, I converted a td4 T7 db to the new T10 format, and then, on using T10 saw that the difficulty was arising on the slow scrolling... I also saw that the T7 was a bit buggy an sometimes would not fire up under my Windows 10.  Because of the T7 on Win 10 seeming bugginess and umpredictiblality, I stuck with the T10 Win 10 version and the tbdb8 new database structure. I have so many images that I did not want to do all the editing/metadata writing with my TD4 database in T7 and totally mess it up, so I stuck with the T10 metadata editor and changed to using  Win 10 T10 on the conveted tpdb8 file..  It takes about 1 second per image to process the data out of the slow-scrolling T10 "myconvertedtfromTP7td4 database into a clean T10 Win 10 thumbs.tpdb8 database.

Well out of 118,000 images in my main drive .. I  only have about 90,000 more to index with the metadata utility ..... still running after 10 hours ... another 20 to go .....

I thought you were doing this from ThumbsPlus v7?

TP7, which had the keywords and annotations in its database, which has the IPTC-editor that can transfer those to the image files, and which didn't suffer any delays? Something doesn't add up here.
