Yeah, my method worked.
Originally, the folder:
/media/sda5/Documents and Settings/FSHero/My Documents/Pictures
had subdirectories containing all my pics. (I put them in my Windows "My Documents" directory to have Windows access lol!) DigiKam's Album Library Path was the same as above.
I moved the whole "Pictures" folder to:
/media/sda5/Documents and Settings/SharedDocs
Finally, in digiKam, I changed the Album Library Path to:
/media/sda5/Documents and Settings/SharedDocs/Pictures
and all my photos, along with tags, were restored.
NOTE: I backed up my digikam3.db and exif-info.db files first!
I imagine that an identical method would work for you, dukeinlondon. GLHF!
