Fixmypcmike, you are right about left over entries from the previous install. However, I don’t think it’s my database that’s at fault because mike123 had a similar experience. It appears that DAZ 3D has a tenacious memory. It insists that a file exits when it does not. Dim is doing its job but because DAZ is still hanging on to a deleted file you get the (2) files problem.
I ended up fixing it just as mike123 did. I went through the entire content library from A - Y, open a file, right click on a thumbnail and choose “remove orphaned reference”. If you have already downloaded the product your thumbnail image will appear. The down side is you have to do each and every thumbnail one by one for each product affected. WOW I had previously installed about 100 files and at least half were affected. That’s a lot of clicks.
Unfortunately, Fixmypcmike, I didn’t get your suggestion until after I had finished, if it works that would definitely be the way to go. The good news - Now my files are so very pretty even the Genesis Starter Essentials is happy and now that I’ve gotten “through the forest” of the past I’m ready to rock and roll. That said, I want to put clothes, props, etc. on my external hard drive. Stay tuned….
As for DIM, I like it! It’s quick, works well with the Product Library and the file size is smaller.
Thank you Fixmypcmike, JimmyC, and mike123!
