Last weekend I’ve replaced my hard drives in my main computer and had to move data from 3 spinning disks to 2 SSDs. I also reorganized my files as things got a bit messy over the years. I also had to move the digikam databases to a new location. I had created backups of all my files and darktable and digikam databases. So far so good.
When starting Digikam I get the warning it can’t find the database and tries to reconnect. I was hoping Digikam would simply start, creating new, empty databases and that I could point to the old databases.
Unfortunately Digikam doesn’t show, but the digikam.exe process is running.
I have tried uninstalling digikam, but the error remains…
I have tried this on a secondary computer. ‘Moving’ the digikam4.db databases to another folder, starting digikam. Digikam starts, creates new empty databases and from the settings I can point it to the old databases without issues.
Both systems run Windows 10. Any idea why Digikam doesn’t create empty databases, doesn’t show and therefore I can’t point to the old databases…?
