           Summary: WISH: Handling of unreadable pics - statistics summary
           Product: digikam
           Version: 2.0.0
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Maintenance
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: axel.krebs at t-online.de

Created an attachment (id=60411)
 --> (http://bugs.kde.org/attachment.cgi?id=60411)
the limited statistics information of Version 2.0 _without_ faulty pics

Version:           2.0.0 (using KDE 4.6.2) 
OS:                Linux

The statistics information ("Statistiken der Datenbank") should contain an
additional information: the number and type of unreadable pictures.


Assume the number of unreadable pics changes with time- this is a good
indicator a harddisk drive maybe loosing realibility. Therefore, one would have
time enough to react, as such failures tend to increase with time (or number of
boot processes, etc.). 

I assume, the used components (imagemagick-libraries??) provide such
information internally, already. So it would be only an additional step given a
professional-like handling feature. 

digiKam version 2.0.0-beta5
AVI: 59
GIF: 99
JP2: 14
JPG: 63435
PGF: 2
PNG: 874
RAW-CR2: 631
RAW-CRW: 10960
RAW-NEF: 31800
TIFF: 879
Gesamtzahl der Einträge: 108760
Alben: 1740
Stichwörter: 46
Datenbanktreiber: QSQLITE

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
failed pictures ar _not_ shown, at this time, nor used to offer the user a way
to secure his data in time (backup or replacement of harddisk drive)

Expected Results:  
digiKam should check,...

1.) at startup (switch on/switch-off in settings!!!)
2.) whenever one adds pictures to the collection

.. if there are faulty/corrupt pics
