New Picture path after migration to new machine - remap?

Maybe I just missed it but is there a chance to remap all picture paths? Simple explanation: On my old machine all pictures were stored in E:\abcd\pics Now on my new machine drive E is gone it is just D:\pics Of course setting the picture paths in options is possible but that seems not to effect all (existing) pictures. Any idea except creating a drive E? ;-)

You could do this with a script. Something like this should do it (please make sure you have a backup before executing this. I did try this before but it might not work equally well for others...)

using System;

using NeonScripting;

using System.Collections;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.IO;

using System.Text;

using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

using System.Linq;

public class Script


    public bool Run(INeonScriptHost host)


        var oldPictureFolder = host.RemoteCalls.InputDialog("Please type in the old picture path.");

        var newPictureFolder = host.RemoteCalls.InputDialog("Please type in the new picture path.");


        if(string.IsNullOrEmpty(oldPictureFolder) || string.IsNullOrEmpty(newPictureFolder))


            return false;



        var albums = host.Database.Albums.ToList();

        var idx = 1;

        foreach (var album in albums)


            host.UpdateProgress($"Updating album picture path for album {idx} of {albums.Count()}");



                var newAlbumPicturePath = album.AlbumPicturePath.Replace(oldPictureFolder, newPictureFolder);

                host.Database.UpdateAlbumPicture(album, newAlbumPicturePath);




        return true;



Glad it worked! Happy to help :-)

Привет друзья! Подскажите, нет ли более простого решения этой проблемы? Освоить программирование сложно, да и задача простая, перенос базы данных на другой компьютер. Спасибо!

Sorry but we don't have any built-in feature for this at the moment so scripting is the way to go.
