[Digikam-users] Careful when exchanging hd's

Yesterday I exchanged my laptops hd for a higher capacity one and was more than
astonished that my primary collections of images didn't show up any more.

sqlitebrowser to the rescue: after adding another directory on the new disk for
testing purposes I found the differing UID's of the partitions to be the reason
for this behaviour. After exchanging the old for the new UID, the primary
collection was available again.

Puzzling at least, and maybe in need for a migration tool
