We have just lost one of our RAID's and with it well over 150,000 photos.
Thankfully we have a backup but now when selecting images we get the problem that the Volume is missing (which it is), because of what else is on the backup RAID we cannot rename the volume, so we are left with having to re-import the images again, but this in itself will cause a major problem,
1. It would take someone bloody years to do this and then also remap the Keywords.
2. There are a lot of cases where I no longer know what the photo is so will not know the name or the person in the photo or the place it was taken, let alone any other references that were worth keywording.
3. The backup of the Photos are very different, the version that died is a lot smaller as we removed unwanted photo from it but never choose to do this on the backup, I would theefore only like to connect to the photographs that are in the old database.
Is there an easy way to do this or have I now got a nightmare that will be a total change of career time?
