  1. One Drive ate my entire catalog of photos


    I recently switched to a new computer new and old running Win 10 and 20 years of photos were stored on an external drive. that external drive and all of the photo files and folders were indexed in Adobe Lightroom Classic on the old machine. When I initiated the new computer, I had a lot of work to do in reconnecting the links in Lightroom to the files on the drive. Then Windows changed the drive letter and I had to fix that. Yesterday I had gotten everything into shape after days of work. Today, most of my photos are somehow in OneDrive and the links to Lightroom are broken. I have disconnec

    Lost default photo viewer after profile rebuild

    Thanks Brink. I've tried those steps before i started searching Google. After the profile rebuild i don't have the Photo app listed to choose to make it default in either the system settings for default apps or the Open With option.

    I can't even find it doing a search. Seems to have been removed somehow with the profile rebuild, which doesn't make sense.

    Might be helpful to list what i've done One Drive ate my entire catalog of photos :) I've done the open with check, the choose default program in the system menu, tried that in device manager default programs also. I've checked the programs and features Turn windows features on/off and it's not listed there (never thought it was but that was a suggestion), searched the MS Store, it's not listed there either.

    I don't like playing in the registry unless i have defined steps and haven't found anything for this yet, just the Win7 version like in my OP.
