Associating Collections to New Internal HDD ???

BuckSkin
64-bit Windows 7 Pro

I have just installed a new internal secondary HDD, strictly for my photo collection and gave it drive letter "A"
At the same time, for a back-up, I added an identical HDD in an external enclosure and assigned it "Z"

All of my digiKam collections/albums are associated with the old out-grown external HDD with drive letter "P"

In "settings" > Configure digiKam > Collections, I have tried every possible trick that I could think of to change the old drive letter to the new and nothing I have tried will allow me to edit the folder path.

If I could just change all of those "P" to "A", everything else remains the same.

I have decided this is just not possible; if it isn't possible, then it should be; and if it is possible, then I would sure like to know what I am not seeing.

If I hi-lite a collection and double-click, it will allow me to edit the collection name, but nothing I do will allow me to edit the folder path.

Thanks for reading.

I think you will need to close digikam, find configuration files, change the drive letter there and start digikam. It might tell that drive ID has changed and ask you to confirm whether the new path is your collection and everything should work after that. I have done same on Linux but it is a bit easier on Linux since you can connect a new drive to the same mount point

Thanks.
The closest thing I have found resembling a configuration file are these three:
libKF5ConfigCore dot dll
libKF5ConfigGui dot dll
libKF5ConfigWidgets dot dll
Is one of these what you meant ?
I found them in  Windows > Program Files > digiKam

I have never opened a dll file before so I was afraid to mess with them.

No, dll files are 'Dynamic Link Libraries' and contain executable code
that is needed to make programs run.

The digikam configuration files are supposed to be

~/Local Settings/digikamrc
~/Local Settings/digikam_tagsmanagerrc
~/Local Settings/kipipluginsrc
~/Local Settings/kipirc
~/Local Settings/showfotorc
~/Local Settings/digikam/*

Where the ~ stands for C:\Users\<username> and you need to use \ instead
of / everywhere in that list.

Re: Associating Collections to New Internal HDD ???

Hi,
Sorry to be such a dumbie; however, when I navigate to the first of the four paths you listed, I immediately get a pop-up window that asks me which program I want to open the file with; every program I have is listed (and there are many); what kind of files are these and what opens them ? Or, am I doing something wrong ?

Thanks so much.

Thanks.
The first of the list = Notepad said it did not exist; however, Wordpad opened it.
The rest of the list = I get a pop-up notice saying that the location does not exist, please check my spelling and try again.

Your user probably has no write access to the folder or maybe digikam isn't closed so it blocks access to the file. I am pretty sure the config you are looking for is digikamrc

Hi,
Sorry to be such a dumbie; however, when I navigate to the first of the four paths you listed, I immediately get a pop-up window that asks me which program I want to open the file with; every program I have is listed (and there are many); what kind of files are these and what opens them ? Or, am I doing something wrong ?

Thanks so much.

The digikam configuration files are supposed to be

~/Local Settings/digikamrc
~/Local Settings/digikam_tagsmanagerrc
~/Local Settings/kipipluginsrc
~/Local Settings/kipirc
~/Local Settings/showfotorc
~/Local Settings/digikam/*

Where the ~ stands for C:\Users\<username> and you need to use \ instead
of / everywhere in that list.

Okay, Thanks !
I can open and read digikamrc; now I just need to see if I can understand what I am seeing.
I won't make any changes until I am certain of the outcome.

Yes; Thanks; the way I blunder about I like to be certain of an emergency plan; I will make a backup in case I mess up.

Hi,
Sorry to be such a dumbie; however, when I navigate to the first of the four paths you listed, I immediately get a pop-up window that asks me which program I want to open the file with; every program I have is listed (and there are many); what kind of files are these and what opens them ? Or, am I doing something wrong ?

Thanks so much.

Why not just shutdown digikam , change P drive letter to something else and then change A drive letter to P drive letter?

Re: Associating Collections to New Internal HDD ???

BuckSkin
Thanks.
That was my first thought and would have accomplished everything needed as easily as just reassigning the letters.
Your solution is the most sensible means of keeping things on track; however, I wanted my main internal working pictures drive to be "A" and the external back-up drive to be "Z"; and, with all of you guys help, now they are.

So did the trick changing the path in digikamrc config file work ?

Also, for me the letter A: will always be reserved for a floppy drive. Haha, just kidding. Looks like I got old enough to make such jokes.

Thanks.
That was my first thought and would have accomplished everything needed as easily as just reassigning the letters.
Your solution is the most sensible means of keeping things on track; however, I wanted my main internal working pictures drive to be "A" and the external back-up drive to be "Z"; and, with all of you guys help, now they are.

Okay, Thanks !
I can open and read digikamrc; now I just need to see if I can understand what I am seeing.
I won't make any changes until I am certain of the outcome.

The first of the list = Notepad said it did not exist; however, Wordpad opened it.
The rest of the list = I get a pop-up notice saying that the location does not exist, please check my spelling and try again.

Hi,
Sorry to be such a dumbie; however, when I navigate to the first of the four paths you listed, I immediately get a pop-up window that asks me which program I want to open the file with; every program I have is listed (and there are many); what kind of files are these and what opens them ? Or, am I doing something wrong ?

Thanks so much.

No, dll files are 'Dynamic Link Libraries' and contain executable code
that is needed to make programs run.

The digikam configuration files are supposed to be

~/Local Settings/digikamrc
~/Local Settings/digikam_tagsmanagerrc
~/Local Settings/kipipluginsrc
~/Local Settings/kipirc
~/Local Settings/showfotorc
~/Local Settings/digikam/*

Where the ~ stands for C:\Users\<username> and you need to use \ instead
of / everywhere in that list.

I used to think the same way. Now I think that the system should start at "/" and you mount your drives where ever you want.

I have the 2TB HDD in my wife's machine divided into three partitions/drives (actually five - counting factory restore and system reserved)
On that HDD "C" of course is the OS, then "A" is strictly for pictures, and "B" is for everything else --- documents, music, and video, etc.

I used the A to Z approach on my machine so that the internal secondary 2TB HDD "A", no matter what else may be active, is always at the top of the list; and, the identical external backup HDD "Z" is always at the bottom.
