No guarantees...but if you are trying to clean up
and start over...the following info may be useful:
The "Pictures.pd4" database includes thumbs
and metadata and is found at the following location.
Windows Photo Gallery\Pictures.pd4
The file can also be found with an Advanced
Search for pd4.
Go to...Start / Search / Advanced Search.
Check the box..."Include non-indexed, hidden,
and system files" Enter pd4 in the Name field
Renaming or deleting the .pd4 file should
clean up your Photo Gallery.
Try renaming it... Pictures.OLD
If you are unhappy with the results...you can
try changing it back to Pictures.pd4.
