Thank you very much for your answer.

I'm now back to the right database, but ... one of my collection/external
drive now appears twice, but not exactly in the same manner, as one of them
seems to have lost (at least) all the pictures grouping (see screecopies
I need to remove one of them, but it has to be the one that has no grouping
information. How can I know which is which? I tried to rename one of them
in the album panel, but this is not allowed.


Thanks for helping,
