I like to change the path of my basedir and my digikam DB. My first thought 
was to copy alle pictures and the database to the new destination, start 
digikam and change the basedir in the configuration. But after that digikam 
wanted to delete all database entries, because the files are not at the old 
destination. So I think the pathes to the pictures are absolute and not 
relative, so I can not easily copy all files.

What have I to do if I want to change my basedir without loosing any 

thank you for your hopefully helping answer
