    Peter,

    Are you "importing" files always to the same folder on disk?

    If so, all of your sessions (and maybe catalogs if you are using referenced storage rather than Managed Storage) are heading to the same folder on disk.

    A session can accommodate that quite happily for those that wish to work that way. However, it sounds like it is not really what you want to achieve.

    Before going any further with guidance that might not be what you need, can you just check to see where all of the images are on the system disks.

    hi SFA (?),

    my apologies for my delayed reaction and thank you so much for that crucial hint. I had indeed many of my files in the same location on the disk. I have now better understood the (simple) organisation of files in C1 sessions. I thought it would be much more complicated and somehow hidden deep in the C1 internal structure instead of simply using the "normal" filing method. Thanks a lot again for your quick reply.

    kind  regards to Denmark,

    Hi Peter,

    I had a similar feeling about complexity in session folder structure when I started using C1 towards the end of the Version 5 period. It was almost a year before I set aside a few days to properly understand how things worked. 

    After a much shorter time than "Several days"  I realised it was not really complicated at all  - just different to the software I was already using (that did not have a catalogue concept just as C1 V5 had no catalog functionality. But it also lacked anythin like a managed session option).

    I think I had it all worked out, with both applications running sharing the same source files but their own edit sidecar files and working perfectly well, within about 4 hours.  I was, of course, happy that it was all usable but at the same time annoyed with myself that I had dived in at step 3 rather than taking the time to properly  understand steps 1 and 2 first!
