  1. PHOTOS - People and Albums now missing


    I did a backup and restore of my computer. All my photos are available but my large database of 45,359 photos are no longer in albums and the hundreds of people tagged that data is missing. I spent about two years shorting all the photos when I moved to Windows Photos from Live Photo Gallery and it was painful seeing all the features removed and there is little to no information on how to restore Album data or to have Photos reindex the People database.

    :)

    Missing apps: Store, People, Photos, Games & Camera on upgrading to 10


    Thanks for replying spunk. That's the 'alphabetical' list I was referring to, none of these apps are in that 'All apps' list. Any more suggestions?

    PHOTOS - People and Albums now missing

    Why did the photos app auto-create a random photo album?

    The automatic album creation is a new feature:

    (Source: Microsoft documentation.) It didn't add all the photos taken on that date because it thought some were too similar to others:

    Date and time are definitely taken into account when grouping the photos; a CNET article suggests there might be more complex logic too:

    The location would be determined from information embedded in the picture by the device that took it.

    Concerning the uninvited appearance of the app: That seems to be a bug experienced by many people with the management of Universal app processes. For some, it's caused by a certain version of DisplayFusion.
