Posted on 2011-10-31

I use PSE 4. I have copies of my photos and after a crash could put them back into the correct folders. I also have a copy of the latest catalog.

I can re-install PSE 4 itself from the original disk.

How do I get the latest catalog back into PSE 4 ?

    If needed re-install.
    Did you make a full backup?
    I'm going to quote a reference for a back that was done, and now a restore is required, this should apply if you have backedup your PSE correctly.
    Make A new Folder and name it the same name as your catalog. Put it anywhere either on your desktop / My Documents etc or off onto a secondary USB drive if space is an issue.
    click on File > Restore (The wording after Restore varies depending PSE version you are using).
     7.In the Restore From section of the dialog box, select the drive or location containing the backup files
    click on the Browse button and then navigate to and select the .tly file in the folder you used for your backup.
     8.In the Restore Files and Catalog to section of the dialog box, select New Location.>( your new Folder)
     9.Click on the Browse button and navigate to the new folder in which you are going house your catalog and images
     10.Make sure you select Restore Original Folder Structure.
     11.Click Restore.
    Hope it assists
