[Digikam-users] lost a lot of information about photo rating!!!

In a related way, my single complaint with Digikam is that I've lost 
tags several times in the past couple of years, namely every time i've 
upgraded or changed disks.  Digikam recognizes that the UUID has changed 
and all my tags are gone.  The images (RAW & jpg) and folders and such 
are all there, which is the  most important thing--but any user data is 
gone.   I won't use tags any more until I have a better understanding of 
how to transfer tags across disk changes/replacements/upgrades.  I'd 
rather it never looked at UUID, which I think of as a machine pointer, 
as opposed to a handle with deliberate semantics (path or mountpoint).
