    Angry Shotwell data lost!

    I recently set up a new system with Ubuntu Gnome remix. I have my home folder on a separate drive so I thought all my settings would be safe.

    But since opening up shotwell all the data seems to be gone!!! there is a database file under ~/.local/share/shotwell/data but it's dated as being updated recently. so if there was any data there, it's since been overwritten.

    This is very painful as I was halfway through editing my photos from a 2 month long europe trip (approx 6000 photos). And now I have to start from scratch again! any ideas that might save me??
