    I was trying to update my laptop with all of my recently purchased content that is on my EHD. When I plugged in the EHD, it gave me a different drive letter. I screwed up and redid all of my library files to the new letter, and therefore lost my categories. Since I have a backup EHD, is there any chance that the categories might be saved somewhere there? Looks like I am in for a bunch of work, as I have 2230 kits right now . . .

      First, you need to set a permanent drive letter for your EHD and restore the drive letter to what it previously was.. Then, if you have a back up of your category files, you should be able to restore the back up.

    If my computer crashes or if I purchase a new computer will I loose all of my categories and have to start over.

    What is meant above is what is the difference between categories and tags? Don’t see a way to edit the comment.

    • Mary says:

      When using categories you put an entire kit into a specific category. For example “At the Speedway Bundle” by Luck Girl could go into a category called “boys” or “transportation”. If you like one paper in the “At the Speedway Bundle” you could tag it for anything like “travel” or maybe it was one sign embellishment in the bundle you might use again and again but not the whole kit you might tag it with “signs”. Tags are more item specific. Categories are for entire kits.
