(Here your message)
Piwigo version: 2.82
PHP version: 1:7.0+49
MySQL version: 5.6.30-1
Piwigo URL: http://localhost
My photos were stored in galleries symlinked to another HDD which failed and lost all photos. I have now recovered the photos and rebuild the symlink. I did synchronization, updated album and photo info and photos in piwigo are restored, however, all the descriptions and photo id comments, etc are gone. Before I sync the photos, the database shows all the photo descriptions, etc. After the sync, they have been replaced with null. I restored the database (I have a myswldump file), and it brought back the descriptions, but the photos are now gone.
Please advice if I can restore my photos with correct database info. TIA
Edit: after I sync, it shows 68 photos added to database, 69 photos deleted from database, 69 photos updated in database. How can I stop it from deleting from database, but just to add photos to database?

Solved. I found out that there are 2 galleries folders. One in Piwigo/galleries, and one in Piwigo/_data/i/galleries. I need to symlink both of them to another HDD. Load the recovered photos to /piwigo/galleries and do syncronization.
