Thanks for your response,,
the storage path/dir are fine.. it was working just fine before the upgrade and I can see all photos.. and I did not change any of that and I did check too
in every category, after the upgrade, it will show some photos and not others and thats what made me do scan.
as for the images (files), they were there but as soon I ran scan on that category, PP deleted the files off my folder.
I made a backup of pp databse before I upgraded and also had one before that.. when I tried to restore them via SSH, it throw garbage on screen that I've never seen before.. I use SSH all the time with vB
so I am not sure I will have any luck with pp database.
but I do need the photo files resotred as they are gone off the server in that category.
anyway.. I will go now and double check the path for data
oops.. I was using the origianl images folder and I missed it after the upgrade
Thanks again Chuck.. I have changed the settings for the Original images folder now and I just need the deleted files to be restored by my host..
