FS#466 - Original photos deleted without adding to database on database write failure


I'm having a problem with writing to my database, but reads are fine. I am adding images from a local directory. I am using PO 2.36.1.

When I try to add images, I get red text telling me that the transferring the metadata failed and that PO failed to update the database. Unfortunately, PO still goes ahead with "cleaning up the mess".

Luckily I still have a backup of my photos, but this part of the process could probably use some extra checks and an abort before deleting the files.

Thank you,

Good catch. I think I have a fix for this, but the fix is against -devel and 2.37:;a=commitdiff_plain;h=6d248e5a99e7d2b1c29d2fb7b9e5f33420a9f1fe

That said, you really should upgrade to 2.37 or newer.
