AuthorSubject: File Browser, cache and changing folder names   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Paula Lerner
Posted on Thu May 27, 2004 3:16 PM

I started a sizable book project recently and shot 3 days worth of files for the first installment. When I downloaded the first batch of files, I wasn't careful about how I named the original first folder I downloaded to, and now would like to change the name so that it fits with my naming and bookkeeping conventions that I've established.

I downloaded the raw files into two main sub folders, the first with the first two days of the shoot, the second with the last day of the shoot. When I opened each subfolder in the CS file browser, I cached them and then exported the cache. I color corrected, flagged, and rotated hundreds of files in each folder, and made my web page from the browser to show the client. So far so good.

Late last night I renamed the external main folder while it was sitting on my desktop, forgetting that doing this would make my flags, rotations and thumbnail color corrections disappear. Aaarggghh. I realized my mistake this afternoon and changed the name of the folder back to what it was (it took me several tries to remember it exactly, I was relieved that I finally got it!). Fortunately, all my flags, rotations and color corrections returned intact.

Now I still want to rename the folder so I can store the files in my system correctly. I tried to rename the outer folder from the browser (as opposed to my desk top). But when I do the flagging etc. data still disappears. How can I rename the outer folder without messing this data up? I back up my files on external hard drive that gets accessed by another computer, so I need to keep the data orderly so as not to lose the flags, rotations and cc's in the copies or when copied to other computers altogether.

I had a problem with this some weeks ago, and some of you helpfully enabled me to figure out what had happened to the files when the flags etc. disappeared. If anyone could outline a clear caching workflow, and how I can rename the folders without losing this data, I would be grateful. Keeping the xmp sidecars, the cache and its connected data straight has been a big snafu for me in recent weeks and cost me much lost work time. (Adobe, are you listening?) In addition, if anyone could explain exactly what is happening when I click on "build cache for subfolders" and then "export cache", I would also be appreciative. There isn't much helpful info in the PS CS manual on this.

Best,

Paula Lerner
