Because the catalog is a database, you may occasionally need some advanced options to maintain or restore your catalog database. Occasionally a Photo Mechanic Plus software update will require you to reindex your catalogs. This process can take a long time, so we advise only doing this when you see an alert box from Photo Mechanic advising you to do so. 

1 Navigate to Catalog>Manage Catalogs

2 Select the triangle next to a listed catalog

3 Select the triangle next to Maintenance

3 Select Re-Index Catalog.
