Resolved Question

windows 10 and nikon d7100

ok... last night i finnally updated my computer from win8.1 to 10.

im in the middle of taking pictures for my website...

for the past 6 months or so i would take about 200 or more pictures a week.

last night i finnally reached 10k. It created a new folder and started taking pictures starting at 1. I got up to 55.

afterwards i started the update to windows 10. and went to bed.

this morning i finished the process of the update, and started taking pictures again.

when i went to photo view, i did not see the 5 pictures i just took, so i went back to the 7100 folder and found out that it had created a new folder and started back at 1... (should have been 56)...

i am keeping track of the numnbers so i know what pics go with what pieces...

I need to know why windows 10 is doing this to me, i blame win10 cause i have not changed any of the settings on my camera, and it worked fine for over 6 months.

Is this going to be happening everyday?

how can i get this back to the way it was without going back to win 8.1?

Clarification Request
Unclear here. What app are you using?

In reply to: windows 10 and nikon d7100

Windows 10 is the OS, so this must be an app issue. What app?

Also, where's the backups? Are your trying to use a PC without backups of things you can't lose?

i have double backup... happy Cool

i will look into that article... but if i have never changed any of my settings, for over 10k pics, on the camera about making a new folder, so why is it now giving me problems.

That's a common refrain.

In reply to: your suggestion

"I changed nothing"

It still means I get to open up menus and do some research. My camera creates new folders and for me that's no issue. I've had too many digital cameras over the years so I think I must be used to folder hunts.

In reply to: wherefore art thou stuff

If the folders are on the camera and the camera puts the pictures in the folders, why do you think Windows 10 is involved?

ill look into camera

In reply to: Re: folders

i am reluctant to look into the camera as being the issue, because nothing has changed.

in fact yesterday i looked at camera menu... going thru it and couldnt find a setting to change

The clues are pointing to the camera. Ask the camera maker about the rules of folder creation. Windows doesn't dictate to the camera about this.
