digiKam identifies a disk with the UUID stored in metadata when media
is formatted. This is performed by KDE::Solid framework component.

The collection attached to a disk is stored in the database.

Typically, if you change a disk after a hardware failure, and restore
your collection from a backup, digiKam will parse the new disk and
will ask where it must find the collection on new media.
