When closing a Catalog, Capture One automatically tests the integrity, structure, and content of the database. The process searches for any errors that might eventually corrupt the database and attempts to fix them before such issues occur. Therefore, it is recommended not to disable that option. You can also check and optimize any Catalog manually at any time.
- In the current Catalog (or Session), select File -> Verify Catalog or Session... A Finder/Explorer window opens.
- Navigate to the relevant Catalog ([name] .cocatalogdb) and click Open. If you attempt to verify the already open Catalog, a warning dialog will appear prompting you to close the Catalog before verifying.
- A Verify Catalog dialog opens displaying a progress bar, then a path to the database, and a list of the checks. The verified Catalog is not automatically re-opened. In case you have not upgraded the Catalog to use it with the latest version of Capture One, the dialog displays a Database verification FAILED message. To continue with the verification, click on Upgrade first, then Verify.
- Select Open to launch the verified Catalog or Verify to repeat the process on the previously verified Catalog or Close to dismiss the dialog (in order to continue working in the already open Catalog or Session).
