Andrey, thanks for the response. Your support is fast and awesome.
Ok, on the old computer, I went into Window Explorers and changed one of the options. So the file I was seeing that was called .tonfotos now shows up as .tonfotos.ini.
Just to confirm, before I try to copy all the photo directories to the new computer, I will turn on the Dossier function on the old computer right?
Once I do that, is it clear how long I need to wait for Tonfotos to do anything in the background before I copy all the folders to a thumb drive to move to the new computer? There are over 10,000 photos in this folder of folders of photos.
Once I move the photo directories to the new computer, and install Tonfotos on that computer, I assume I also turn on the Dossier function on the new computer right?
I see in this email chain that I need to uninstall the old Tonfotos first before activating the Tonfotos on the new computer.
When I copy the old computer photo directories to the new computer, it will be copied into a “Pictures” folder on a E: drive that is an external USB drive. That drive already has dozens of photo directories and thousands of photos spread out through all of those dozens of directories. The directory I’m copying over from old to new computer is not on the new computer. So I assume this process you described will work on the copied over parent directory I put in the E:\Pictures directory and re-index. I also believe Tonfotos will start indexing all the other sub-directories for the first time inside of the E:\Pictures directory and eventually all of the folders and photos will be analyzed by Tonfotos.
Is there any limit to the number of directories and photos that Tonfotos can handle? I checked properties on E:\Pictures and there are currently 101,602 photos taking up 387 GB (415,765,228,952 bytes). The folder I’m copying over (from the old computer) has about 10,250 photos and takes up 37GB. Will this Tonfotos be able to handle potentially over 110,000 photos spread out in potentially 100 sub-directories?
