I have been backing up the photos folder for my immich. Something weird happened with one of my hard drives so i had to restore. It has a folder for each year and inside there is a folder for each day. immich doesnt support the ability to drag and drop the year folder into the UI. What’s the best way to get all my media back into immich?

    Add the existing base folder as an external library, and use a new folder as the main immich folder for uploads.

      Is there a trick to this? I have attempted several times. It always says the path is wrong… I’ve opened terminal for the container and CD into the directory and LS to see all my photos. Copy the path name and put it into the external library and it still says bad path.

        Permissions issue maybe? Although being able to see the files in the containers terminal seems like that wouldn’t be the case.
