All works fine on the SSD and one of the external HD
When working on the other HD cannot get any edits to stick (save).
Raw refine - no WB, No ODR, etc
Same in Editor cannot make any adjustments such as crop, sel col, DFS, Curves.
Will it be a problem with the Drive?
It sounds like you had a bottle of the BEST before you found this problem.
OK Information pleaase.
The flt file and the qrs file, both being edit files, stay with the image.
So, first question, what indication do you get that the filter wasn't saved?
Any error message?
What drive and folder are you in when you try to save the filter?
Is this image a copy or the one and only?
The bottle blured my thinking, a great improvement.
I came to conclusion the side car files are not updating. This would appear to be the case.
I get no error message, QI just hangs about for a few minutes, then image reverts to previous edit.
EG. Do a crop, looks ok in editor, > done > hangs about for a bit then back to original non crop.
PS Elements does not appear to have the problem, but then it is not using SideCars.
Just fired up the two drives and can create new folder on each Ok, but the one giving the trouble is just the same with QI.
The drives are quite old and are only switched on when photo editing, so actual usage is quite low.
Stuck a label "suspect" on the problem drive.
Later today I will copy a folder back to the working SSD and see what happens.
Will post back result.
