how to delete a session or catalog?

    You would delete them outside Capture One, in Finder. Think of the catalog or session as a Capture One "document". You couldn't open a Word document, and delete it from within Word. Same with Capture One catalogs and sessions. (Note well: this is the opposite of what you should do most of the time - when you want to move images it is always best to do it from within the Capture One Library tool, so that Capture One can keep track of your edits and the location of your images.)

    Beware if you delete a catalog - are the images stored inside the catalog? Or are they on your computer file system somewhere? If they are in the catalog and you don't have copies somewhere else, you'll need to extract them first.

    Thanks a lot Ian,

    sounds logical...now.
    I just started the whole thing so now I am still flexible to start up from scratch. Importing my lightroom photo's will be the next project. Anyway, step by step it's getting more clear to me. Thx again!

    The advice of those who have imported LR catalogues starts with 'make sure the LR data is in good shape' first.

    That makes sense since any internal issues that LR might be working around unknown to you might not be readily handled by a 'conversion' program.

    There are quite a lot of posts regarding importing LR catalogues on the forum. You may already know that but just in case you don't I thought I would mention it.

    HTH.

    You probably mean importing your Lightroom catalog, an't you ? And I guess you know your previous Lightroom adjustments won't be imported with the catalog, except for some basic and not related with the demosaicising process, such as rating, crop,... (the C1 user's manual gives some info about that).

    Thanks for advices!

    Your'e right of course...But for the moment I thing I leave it as it is until I have some more feeling with C1. Still struggling with the 'normal' way of managing. After watching the tutorial I copied some 800 raw pics from one external disc to an external SSD drive, intended to restore the reference pics with the SSD drive. Not so. No matter what iI tried, only 1 photo at the time instead of the whole map. A long night for 800...! Then I figure it might be an idea to synchronise. That was a great plan... 😕 Now I still have 800 'offline' pics and next to that 800 imported reference pics.... Not funny..
    Somebody can help me out..?

    Hi Arthur,
    You should go to your parent folder in the C1 library, and "Locate....." your new SSD drive, and you should then retrieve all your pictures at once.

    I think you are referring to the Locate command, which is used to find an image or folder that has been by some other SW than Capture One.

    Capture One has two Locate functions, one is for restoring the reference to an image file, the other for restoring the refernce to a folder containing image files (and so to all the image files in the folder).

    To use the first form of Locate you start in the User Collections section of the Libarary, in one of the user collections. Select a variant, and the Locate Image command lets you identify the new location of the image file.

    To use the second form of Locate you start in the Folders section of the Libarary. Select a Folder, right click, and the Locate command lets you identify the new location of the Folder.

    Thx Eric&Robert,

    what I did is copying the file with pictures on the external drive I used to another external drive I want to use. After disconnecting the 'old' drive en use the new one, I did right click on the map/folder of the new drive, I can see the files but greyed out, I cannot select anything. So that is where it ends. The first option I can use, opening the maps in the user collection. There I actually can make the reference , but only one by one....Big job connecting about 900 pictures...

    Reconnecting 900 files one by one will destroy you, mentally and physically.
    In the first option, you need to select a folder, not an image file, can you give it another try and see if you can select the matching folder?

    I wouldn't try this in the latest Capture One, v12.1.2, I've just discovered a bug with this feature. 12.1.1 should be fine.

    I did again, but all the time I end up with a black screen with the frase 'no pictures selected'...
    It shows the folder on my new drive, and below the button with 'open'. When I use that it shows the above frase and the black screen..
